Admin Home

Welcome to the MTCHS Admin Portal!

We have modified the Admin Portal to only be accessible to Students and Staff that deal with real Administrator Functionality. We’ve shifted anything related to staff over to the Staff section of the website, so you can make all of your changes there. We hope that this helps to simplify the Admin Portal, and gives a more comprehensive list of what can be modified.

On the left is a list of tabs that you can use to visit areas that will allow you to modify information regarding the sections.

If you find any bugs or issues, or would like to suggest that a change be made, please talk to whomever the Student Programming Intern is, or see Ms. Richtsmeier.

Naming Standards for Documents and Forms
1. Remember: Everyone has access to these documents, and we want to ensure that we are professional and appropriate in the way that we name things. Please follow the naming and formatting standards below, when naming new documents or forms.
2. Naming Standards: The first letter of every word should be capitalized, except for acronyms (where all letters are capitalized), and articles, conjunctions, and participles (where all letters should be lowercase).
3. Formatting Standards: All text should be consistent, and consist of only one color and one typeface/font. Additionally, emphasis (ie. bold, italics, underlines) should only be used sparsely and in appropriate situations.
