The Newton public schools have launched a new website and it makes getting information about schools and the school committee easier.
Until recently, parents and students had to visit two websites, one for the school district and another for the school committee. The School Commitee website had been created and managed by volunteers since former School Committeeman Andy Vizulis created it years ago. Shelley Chamberlain, director of information technology for the schools, said the new site -- newton.k12.ma.us -- is now managed by a staffer in the school department.
We're really trying to update our look and make it easier for parents to get information quickly," she said.
The site offers information on curriculum, student assessments and evaluation reports, like a recent audit performed by Sun Associates of North Chelmsford. The report looks at technology in the schools and how well teachers are using it.
