The Inranet examples on the previous pages might be useful in providing some ideas that you can use to "kick-start" a school Intranet.
For schools using Apple software, the K-6 iWeb example includes a template that you can download and modify for use in your school.
All Mac OS X Server networks include a full, built-in Intranet environment - Mac OS X Server software includes a "one-click" web server (Apache), and every user's Home folder can be activated to include their own personal Intranet site (Sites > index.html). Note - In 10.6 and later some further configuration is required to enable these facilities.
Many of the ideas discussed in these pages are designed to operate in this environment, but is also applicable in other Intranet environments utilising Linux and Windows platforms. Similar concepts can be applied to other environments, such as Moodle or WordPress.
The notes below provide some "how-to" info to help you get started in publishing content on your school Intranet.
