Portfolio / High School Website for McCann Technical School
Location: North Adams, MA
Berkshire Direct provided website design and website development services to create a high school website for McCann Technical School of North Adams, MA.
High School Website Features
WordPress is an ideal platform for building a high school website. Two features we were able to take advantage of for the McCann project are:
- Events Calendar
We found an events calendar plugin which allows each sports team and other subgroup within the school to publish a calendar of just their events which rolls up into a master calendar for the entire school.
- Custom Post Type for Emergencies or Alerts
We used the CPT UI plugin to build a custom post type for announcements like snow days and other urgent matters. When one of these custom posts is activated, it appears right beneath the main navigation against a full width bright red background in white bold font. The user can click the alert to go to a detail page and get all of the associated information.
