MPS Web Best Practices

Web Services, in cooperation with Community Relations and Educational Technology, has published a set of best practices for all MPS Web sites.  By following these best practices, webmasters and other contributors can ensure that their sites are compliant with MPS district policy and optimized for use by most parents, students, and other visitors on the Internet.

Please read the full story for a link to the MPS Web Best Practices, and to learn about two new programs we are implementing: Architeck Best of the Month, recognizing our district's best web sites; and Developers' Dialogue, where the developers of Architeck will answer your questions.
