What is RSS?
Many websites today use a technology referred to as "RSS". Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution. Many sites offers several RSS feeds for use in news readers and Web logs (blogs). These feeds include headlines, summaries and links back to the main site for the full article. RSS feeds are free.
The Trumbull Website sends a feed whenever important information has been added to the site. This includes Board of Education meetings, emergency information and school closings. Spamming has made joining email notifications a problem. RSS, comes to your computer - like email, but with no address involved. Once you subscribe to a "feed", the information comes to your computer. You do need a RSS reader.
How do I get a RSS Reader?
Google offers a free RSS reader. All you need is a free google account (gmail) and you're set to go!
In addition, some newer browsers like Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 have built-in RSS readers. Also Outlook and many mail programs also let you add RSS feeds.
We are now switching to Twitter for all the RSS notifications.
