    Does anyone use School Fusion for your class webpage? My district just got it and wanted any advice/tips.

    I used it last year, but I feel kind of limited with it. Back in high school I used to design websites, and felt like there wasn't a lot that I could do to "cutesy" up the site. Here is what I had:

    So I put together one the other day, that I am going to put on our grade level website, so that people bypass my school fusion page altogether. It has all the same exact information and links... it just is a much nicer package for it:

    My system uses it and has since about 2006. The class pages are very easy to use and have some very good features. I have lots of documentation on all the features and how to use them. If you like, you can contact me and I can send them to you.

    It also depends on what features your moderator allows you to access. It looks like Mr. Flamingo has more features he is set up to use. For our school, it was our first year, and our moderator was still learning how to use the site. It is pretty easy to use though for the basic features! My big pet peeve is just that if you actually want to use the page, it becomes really long. That's my issue with school fusion... but if you just want a simple page, it's perfect for you!
