Question: How much does it cost to run the district Web site and all that goes with it? How much did it cost for the video that's on the home page? Is this something we absolutely need or can we save money by not having such an elaborate site?
Answer: Each year, the district pays its Webmaster a $5,000 stipend. The Webmaster's job is to update the district Web site on a regular basis. As for the video, "I Am Broadalbin-Perth," because the district contracted with a BOCES service to create the video, the final cost will be $663 after state aid.
The community has asked that our district Web site be updated on a regular basis, and contain the most complete and up-to-date information we can provide. Over the past few years, the Web site has actually saved the district thousands of dollars in printing and mailing costs by housing many of the pieces we used to send home to parents, such as school newsletters and certain notices.
