During the 2000-2001 school year the Student Council initiated development
a web site in order to better serve the students of Kailua Intermediate
School. The site was created by the Student Council advisor, Mr.
Blain Shinno, and a team of 7th and 8th grade Leadership students. In
the Summer of 2000, the team added the upgrading and maintenance
of the main Kailua Intermediate site to our list of responsibilities.
Most of the work on this site is done on a bank
of Macintosh computers
in the Leadership computer lab. The team uses the following computer
systems and imaging hardware to maintain this site: 400 MHz Macintosh
DV (Digital Video) iMac, 400 MHz Macintosh PowerBook G3, 300 MHz
Power Macintosh G3, 400 MHz Pentium II, Canon Optura DV (Digital
Video) camera, Olympus Stylus Zoom 115 camera, and a Microtek ScanMaker
Each web design and image editing program has its good and bad points.
We use whatever works (especially since we don't like to read manuals):
Microsoft Office 2000, Macromedia
Dreamweaver 2, Macromedia Fireworks 2, and Adobe Photoshop 4. The
basic layout and design for this site was done with Dreamweaver
2. It is updated with both FrontPage 2000 and Dreamweaver 2.
We would like to thank Elizabeth Garver and Darren Tanaka for their
invaluable technical advice. Thank you also to Tyson Miyahira from
Hawaii Island Creations for his assistance in the creation of our
logo and banner.
