The Benefits of a Great Classroom Calendar Setup

With more states requiring schools to make their classroom information available online, it's important to support teachers with technology solutions to make the process as easy as possible. One of the most requested pieces of classroom information are calendar events and schedules. 

By maintaining an up-to-date, classroom calendar, teachers and schools take great strides in building trust and improving communication with parents, guardians and students.

In the video below you can find some best practices on how to structure school calendar features so that teachers and other school staff can share (and many times automate!) classroom schedules, assignment due-dates, and events.    

We’re showcasing features available in the Foxbright CMS, but the strategies themselves can be applied to most school website setups. 

Key Takeaways

  • Create calendars that are specific to a visitors information needs. I.e. A calendar listing assignment deadlines for each individual course.
  • Have one central location where all calendars can be viewed and interacted with.
  • Ensure that your school website CMS has the ability to integrate and sync with popular third party calendar systems like Google Calendar.
