Website Updates

It looks like the folks at ASK are paying attention to our fixes. We will create this post as an always-up-to-date list of problems with ASK’s digital presence and whether they have been resolved.

Total Unresolved Problems: 2

2018-1964=54, not 52.

As of November 26, 2018, we can say that this problem is fixed:

The school even took our advice and went with “over fifty,” meaning they will not have to worry about updating this for a long time.
  • The Middle School Website (Principal Quit Mid-Year). After Nancy AbdulGhafoor, the Middle School principal, quit mid-year, the school took a bit of time updating the Middle School Website to reflect the change. The change is now fixed, and as of this writing, the page is up-to-date.

  • Employment Listings: The current employment listings are a chronic problem for ASK. If we were to show images of every time the list of available jobs was out of date or did not match the list of jobs on either Search, ISS, or TIEOnline, your computer would crash trying to load the biggest website ever created. More recently, the school listed all of its new positions for the 2019-2020 school year, but left the list labeled as 2018-2019 as if there were 20 unfilled positions in the middle of the school year. That many unfilled positions in the middle of the school year would be untenable, the actual number is only between 3-5 at any given time (Wow, that is still a really high number!). Current Status: Up-To-Date (we think).
  • TIEOnline Profile: The school’s TIEOnline profile states that there is an indoor pool and multiple gymnasiums. These statements are temporarily incorrect due to long-term construction. The profile also states, “The American School of Kuwait expects teaching vacancies for outstanding candidates for the 2017-2018 school year.”

  • The Middle School Handbook. This document still lists Nancy Abdulghafoor as principal.

  4. Export the Word document to PDF.
  5. Upload the new PDF to the website.
