Abstract

This review of literature is geared towards the creator and viewer of a school web site. Many developers may or may not have the proper training, equipment or time to create a school web site. Presently, schools are creating web sites that may lack some of the key components addressed in this article. The focus of this review is based on Lamb's six phases of designing an effective school web page. The six phases in creating an educational web site include exploration, planning, designing, creating, revising, and maintaining. The primary functions of a school web site must not be overlooked. It is important to incorporate the students' accomplishments, calendars, school mission, and vision. By using the four fundamentals of web design (contrast, repetition, alignment, and proximity), web sites can be enhanced by creating a more professional look for the viewer.

The presented information will support the fundamentals of constructing a school web site and examples will be provided. The site must be maintained so that students, parents, and faculty members are kept informed. If done correctly, the school web site can have its highest potential when designed for the students, parents, and faculty of the school.
