An e-mail link is a wonderful addition to a teacher's CMS Outreach page. It must be done correctly, to avoid inviting unwanted SPAM messages. Go through the NISD homepage, and you can find an e-mail link for any current employee. This link sends the visitor to a form that they can fill out to send an e-mail.
A Better Way!
It's simple to use the NISD Contact Us system for a secure e-mail link:
Appendix D provides background information regarding the District Events Calendar. The District Events Calendar can be embedded onto your index page and updates to the calendar will immediately appear on your index page. See an examplen at:
Click in the location of the index page where you want to embed your calendar. In this example we are going to embed it in the middle column. With the cursor now flashing where you want the calendar to embed, change to Code View. Dreamweaver will display that part of the code where your cursor presently is. Enter the following code:
width="240" height="300" frameborder="no" scrolling="auto"></iframe>
The ### is a 1-3 digit number found at the links list at
http://www.nisd.net/communications/tools/calendarlinks.php. Look for the number at the end of the link.
For example, Braun Station Elementary (http://www.nisd.net/calendar/agc66) would be associated with 66.
Save and preview your calendar.
The New NISD logo Northside has new logos 1 for the 2011-2012 school year. The new logos have the Service Mark ("SM") symbol included as part of the image. The new guidelines state that the Service Mark symbol is part of the logo and must not be altered or removed 2.
These new logos -- all available on the NISD Intranet -- are now the official Northside logos. They should be used anywhere the Northside logo appears, including campus and department Web pages.
Because of the Service Mark symbol, guidelines state that the minimum
height for the Northside logo is now ".85 inches," which comes out to
55x96 px about 62 pixels at 72 pixels/inch (Web resolution), but at that size the Service Mark symbol is illegible: a policy violation. Instead, the Northside logo should be at a minimum height of 96 pixels, as shown to the left.
We should begin using the new logos in our websites, as well as replacing existing logos throughout our sites. The easiest way, of course, is to upload new logos with the same filenames as the old ones, so that they will appear in existing pages without having to edit the Web pages themselves. Care should be taken to remove logos that would be too small for the Service Mark symbol to appear clearly.
