Teacher Web Sites
Teacher Landing Pages are no longer required by ACPs, and will be phased out in the Fall of 2018.
Current options include ACPS-hosted WordPress sites, and Google sites in the ACPS domain. Teachers may also continue to use externally-hosted web sites. (See "Branding Requirements," below.)
Teachers can now
specify the web site link used in their school Staff Directory listing.
