Consider the Following Questions:
Do you have students who forget their homework?

Would your students and parents like timely reminders of projects, tests, and school events?

Do any of your students receive writing accommodations that hinder their ability to take notes in class?

Would you like your students to have access to lesson materials at home?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you and your students could benefit from a classroom website.
Is it going to be strictly announcements?

Are you going to be posting student work?

Will you be using it as a teaching tool with instructional links?
The more clearly you can define your initial objectives, the easier it will be.
