Getting Started

Become a Webmaster for your school

Who can be a Webmaster for a school?
Anyone who is a DOE employee and has permission from their principal can sign up to become a webmaster.  School Webmasters are assigned by the school principals per the IAUP (Internet Acceptable Use Policy). All school Webmasters must be DOE employees. The principal must confirm by e-mail before the registration of a Webmaster will be approved.  Please contact your network leader to arrange training.

Do I need any experience creating web pages?
No, you don't need any previous experience. The Content Management System is easy to use and requires no knowledge of HTML.

How do I become a Webmaster?
Prior to accessing CMS, webmaster for school based locations must have principal authorization on file. Principals are instructed to fill out the Authorization form and send email to owsinfo@schools.nyc.gov  (We will only accept authorization originating from the principals email address). Approximately 10 days after receiving this form your identified webmaster will receive an email with instructions.

How do I get training?
CMS training for school webmasters is being handled by networks and schools should be in touch with their network to schedule training.
