We are excited to announce that on February 6th, 2015 the Newmarket School District will transition to it's new website powered by Google Sites. 

The site will still be located at:  www.newmarket.k12.nh.us


Why Google Sites?

The decision to move to a new website was based on reducing operating costs, increasing reliability, and encouraging user involvement by introducing an easy to use content management solution. 

COST: Google Apps for Education is FREE! Our current website is hosted at the Newmarket Jr/Sr High School and resides on a physical server. This server is outdated and would need to be replaced within the next two years. The new site will be hosted on Google's servers. 

RELIABILITY: Google guarantees 99.9% uptime for all of it's cloud services, including Google Sites. By hosting offsite the District's website will still be accessible when there is a power outage here in town. During an outage the District would still be able to use the website as a means of communication with the public. 

EASY TO USE: Google Sites offers a friendly intuitive content editor. Our goal is to introduce an easy to use solution that will encourage staff members to maintain their own webpage. 

FEEDBACK: Please do not hesitate to leave us feedback on the new site. There will be a link at the bottom right hand corner of each page that leads to a feedback from. 

The finished product will be a website where information is easily found, content is always up to date, and the needs of the staff, students, and the public are met. 

Thank you,
