One goal of the new Roeper website is to help you- current Roeper community members- find the information you need more efficiently. Over the next few weeks, I am going to introduce some major elements of the site that I think will move us towards achieving this.
Remember– for all of the topics I cover, you have to log in. Taking a few seconds to log in will allow you to access pretty much anything you need.
You will more likely find what you are looking for on MyRoeper than you will on our external site www.Roeper.org. Think of MyRoeper as the main tool for current community members and www.Roeper.org as a main resource for prospective families which highlights the programs, work and stories of our school and of our Roeper community members.
First up: Resources
“Resources” is your information hub.
When you log in, you will see a version of the grid below. The view will depend on your role at school. Although there is a lot of overlap, faculty see slightly different info than parents for example.
Each graphic on the grid is called a post that contains info specific to its title. Click on each post to familiarize yourself with the content. Taking the time up front will allow you to save time when you need to know what’s on today’s lunch menu, want to access grades, or want to sign up for conferences- to name just a few points of interest.
I recommend beginning with the post “Getting Started with MyRoeper” which provides an overview of everything you need to know about MyRoeper.
I am constantly updating Resources, reworking them as I learn better ways of capturing info, and adding additional content. Please be patient, but do let me know if there is something you’d like to see or if you have any questions.
Next up: Pushpages – a fancy term for the old fashioned newsletter.
