Do I need ongoing maintenance?

There’s a lot more than just basic hosting that goes into the monthly maintenance of your school website. There’s uptime tracking, technical support to address more advanced challenges, security updates to make sure your website doesn’t get hacked or injected with malware, regular updates to the infrastructure of your website to make sure it runs smoothly. If you’re looking for peace of mind and an accessible, trustworthy, and capable team to manage your website while you run your school or organization, then Gradelink’s ongoing website maintenance is the solution for you.

Do I need my website to be accessible?
In recent years, website accessibility has been an increasing point of concern for many organizations, in part due to recent updates to laws relating to accessibility (such as Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) as well as an uptick in the frequency of lawsuits brought against establishments that are not compliant with such laws. The education sector is no different from any other industry in this regard, and could easily be targeted by accessibility lawyers. Legal ramifications aside: wouldn’t you want your website to be accessible to people with disabilities?
