HCPSS MPIA Request #2023-095

N James
Requested Information
Are there any listed requirements or uniform instructions provided to school administrators on updating the school/class offerings, news on each high school website? Why is there more information on classes, sports registration information, standardized score reports, etc on "high profile" high schools than others? If we are a district of schools rather than individual school districts then shouldn't there be some uniformity?
