The Virginia High School League is pleased to announce an agreement with rSchoolToday to provide all League schools with access to the rSchoolToday Athletic Scheduler (AS). The AS is a user-friendly, Web-based program designed to automate scheduling and other administrative functions performed by Athletic/Activities Directors and/or their assistants, while also providing a very powerful Web calendar that can be used for an entire school or school division. The AS will share information across VHSL Districts, Regions and ultimately will provide real-time updates to the VHSL website.
“This is a big and exciting step for the VHSL toward becoming the clearing house for information about public school athletics and activities across the Commonwealth,” said VHSL Executive Director, Ken Tilley. “rSchool will allow all of our member schools to communicate and share important information using a single, automated platform. Parents, students, officials and fans will be able to visit the VHSL website and find game schedules and results, district standings, basic team information and more once rSchool is employed by all of our member schools.”
In coordination with the VHSL’s decision to move forward with rSchoolToday, the League has also reached an agreement with BigTeams (BigTeams.com) to build the new VHSL.org website, and to provide each member school with an athletic website that will work seamlessly with the rSchoolToday Athletic Scheduler. BigTeams has spent the last eight years perfecting their high school athletic websites that offer branded sites for each school, online schedules, rosters, video, photos, news, and lucrative fundraising tools. This is a major leap forward for Virginia high school athletics and will be the first statewide system in the nation offering this level of technology and information for parents and fans throughout our communities.
rSchoolToday, a division of Winona, MN based Distributed Website Corporation, offers an entire suite of administrative tools designed to improve the work flow within schools and school divisions. BigTeams is based in Warrenton, VA.
