The Wheaton R-III School Board heard at its Oct. 16 meeting that administrators are working to update the district's website.
Wheaton's new website, which is hosted by Foundation for Educational Services Simplified Online Communication Systems, is designed to improve communication among district faculty and staff members, parents and the community.
The website, which is located at www.wheatonbulldogs.org, provides information on upcoming events, links to the elementary and high school daily bulletins, a school calendar and short articles on student achievements, field trips and other activities.
