Section Heading


On the web, because of the demands of the medium, readers are more likely to scan the page than to read every word. A good developer has to take that into consideration when organizing and formatting a new webpage. But that doesn’t mean reducing everything to bulleted lists of key phrases. Please utilize the strategies explored in this template to make your content scannable.

Sub-Section Heading

Focus on one main topic per page.If what you have to say fits conveniently on one web page, this won’t be a problem. If you have more to say than you feel comfortable asking people to scroll through, try to break it into easily digestible pieces. Each section should cover one major topic, and each section can have its own web page.

Sub-Section Heading

Each page, each major topic, also has to be clearly organized. Many people recommend that web writing follow the inverted pyramid model of organization commonly used in newspapers. In this model, you give the most important facts — the broad base of the pyramid — at the beginning of the article, and then provide supporting and background information as you go on. By the end of the article, the narrow tip of the pyramid, you’re providing information that will interest a few readers but is not vital to the story.

The following statement was read by Superintendent David Healy at the Feb. 21, 2018 board meeting, which took time to honor Toms River Schools TV's contributions to the district and community.


Toms River Schools TV-- the studio, the course, and the student production crew-- are a Toms River institution. Housed within the High School East Media Center and overseen by video production teachers Chip Phillips and Kyle Austin, TRSTV students create newscasts and videos of special events happening within the schools and around the community. Their work has been viewed by thousands over local TV channels on Comcast and Verizon Fios, and worldwide over their YouTube channel. They have won national recognition in competitions as far as California.

Nine years ago, the Toms River Fire Company #1 contacted Mr. Phillips about covering the 2nd largest Halloween Parade in the country after Adelphia Cable dropped reporting local events. They were so pleased with the results that TRSTV has been asked back every year. The crews have also created videos on many of our school initiatives, like the Grunin Foundation Principals Challenge, the NEA Big Read, Beachwood’s therapy dog, and the Jersey Shore Makerfest.

TRSTV is a great example of “real-world” learning opportunities we seek to provide for our students. Creating each segment involves extensive teamwork in planning, filming, editing, and producing a finished product. A five-minute spot could take over 100 hours to produce, and the students deal with on-the-spot challenges and meet tight deadlines with a positive attitude.

Tonight we recognize members of the TRSTV production team that has been responsible for the Halloween production and other contributions to our school and local communities.
