School Announcements

  • Keep it simple and clean

    Please use Sub-Title (H2) for announcement headlines.

    The text and photos should be flush left, not centered. Avoid excessive boldface, ALL CAPS, and underline (which indicates a live link). Occasional red type is OK for emphasis, but use it sparingly.

    ADA compliance

    Please use Heading (H3) if you need a sub-head within an announcement.

    We cannot leave raw coding on the page like this https://www.fcps.net/Page/125 or this, jane.doe@fayette.kyschools.us, because it is not ADA-compliant.  

    In addition, all hyperlinks on a page should be unique and specific to the content. Avoid generic verbiage like "Click here." Simply embed the link in the text like this: Visit our demo site for examples.

  • Keep it fresh & up to date

    Your homepage announcements should be timely and relevant for your students and families. Make the time elements clear, and avoid words like "tonight," "Wednesday," or "this month." Example: Our science fair is Jan. 15.

    You can include the school year at the end of the announcement for clarity in your archives like this, flush left:

    (2020-21)

    Or, if the actual date is not germane to the body of the announcement, you can add it at the bottom like this, flush left:

    (Posted July 12, 2020)

    Tip: You can set each item's end date under "Display Duration," so you never have to worry about old information hanging out on your front page.

    You can also add a horizontal rule if you want to divide your announcements like this:

  • Concert band to present holiday performance 

    Sentence-case style (above) is preferable to all uppercase like this: Concert Band To Present Holiday Performance

    Also, we like to use active headlines (subject & verb) rather than labels like "Holiday performance"

    IAKSS building

     Reminder: For ADA compliance, you must caption every photo on your site with 'alt text' so it shows up in hover mode like "IAKSS building" above.
