District launches updated website
The Prior Lake-Savage School District has launched its new website, which includes a number of new features.
Staff and students can log onto Schoology, the district’s learning management system, from the site, and parents can customize their own calendar by selecting school and district events.
The site now has a social media page called “Laker Network” that pulls together all of the school’s social media in real time and in one place. The public can also request information, from enrollment numbers to transportation information or job openings, using a button at the top of the home page. School board meetings can still be accessed as well.
The site is best viewed using Firefox or Chrome.
