This page outlines how to upload your school's important annual reports as "attachments", including:
- School Results Report
- School Development Plan
- Provincial Testing Multi-Year Report (for schools with Grade 6, 9, or 12)
- Report to Parents/Guardians on Fees
The same principals apply to uploading other documents, like School Council agendas or minutes.
For basic page editing instructions and guidelines, refer to the Page Editing section of this site. The instructions in this page depend on you already having editor permissions and basic skills in place (accessing the secure view, working with the content editor, and saving and publishing pages).
1. Name Your Files
When you add an attachment to a page it's not possible to adjust or re-name it after uploading it, so it's critical to prepare your documents before you add them to your site.
When naming files, use CamelCase - each new word is capitalized. But there are no spaces in your file names. Spaces can cause problems for users. However, the wizard will now identify where each new word is and add the spaces for you.
For example, if we used 'MinutesOctober2019' it contains no spaces, however once we save and publish the page it will display as 'Minutes October 2019'.
2. Find Your Page
The School Results Report, School Development Plan, Provincial Testing Multi-Year Report (if you have it), and Report to Parents/Guardians on Fees should be on your Our School page (in the About Us section of your site).
Navigate to the correct page in your site in the secure view, then use the gear icon to open the page editor.
3. Add Attachments
Use the Add Attachments tool below the content editor area to add the files to the right sidebar.
Navigate to the files (one at a time) on your computer and add them. Refer to the Attachments & Files page of the guide for more information about how to upload and sort the attachments.
4. Delete Old Files
Your website should only include the current version of these reports or other information, so it's important to remove any files or references to previous years.
Watch Out: Deleting Is Forever!
There is no "undo" for the delete, or recycle bin to recover attachments or links that were deleted by mistake. Save your page before deleting the old files. If you delete a file by accident, do not save the page. Instead, click Cancel. Then you can choose to edit the page again, and choose the correct file. The best part? No one ever has to know.
Links or Attachments?
Old files may be in your site as either links or attachments (which are labelled as "Resources" in the page):
To remove the old files, make sure you're in editing view and click the X icon beside the item you want to delete:
If you delete the wrong file by mistake, just click Cancel at the bottom of the page to discard your changes, then try again.
5. Save Your Page
When you're done with your changes, click Save to confirm them.
6. Publish Your Page
After you save, Publish your page to make it visible to the public. Don't forget to review your changes in the public view to make sure everything looks the way you want it to look.
