At the December BOE meeting a parent complained about the lack of a district response to the Newtown tragedy. The person said that there was nothing on the district website. District administrators disagreed, saying that a letter was sent home to students and was also posted to the website.
It turns out that both were correct. The Superintendent's letter was posted on the NECSD website. Unfortunately, when originally posted it was item number seven in a "carousel" style rotating image web page component. A web site visitor who maintained focus on the changing images and then clicked between 28 and 32 seconds later, would be able to retrieve the letter.
The NECSD website continues to do this. Some subset of news items are only available by clicking on the image carousel. This is poor web design.
