    • Class expectations, rules, procedures, etc.
    • Calendar - please delete if not in use

    Teachers are asked to keep additional pages limited to three. Please contact adunning@ems-isd.net if you would like assistance grouping like information into a format that supports this goal.

    Please do not use Template styles or Headings
     
    Body or Paragraph Text:
    • Size: small, normal, or large
    • Formatting: Default Regular. Use Bold or Italics if necessary to accentuate text (never both).
    • Color: Black
    Images:
    • Images should be an accent item on the page and should not distract from the content of the page. Alt text is required for all photos and should accurately describe the photo for screen-reading technology. Ex. Photo of Mrs. Gode and her three children
    • Cartoon/Animated images should not be used.
