The S5 Tab Show can be demo'd on this page. This version of the module is customized specifically for this template and cannot be used with any other templates. We do have another version that can be used on any Joomla template.

The module holds up to 10 actual module positions so you can publish any of your favorite modules to one of the slides and keep your site clean and consolidated while giving it a nice effect. Simply publish the s5 tab show module to your desired module position and pages. Then start publishing modules to the positions in the tab show (s5_tab1, s5_tab2, etc); these modules will become the slides. There is also an automatic advance feature that allows you to automatically advance through the slides are your own specified interval.
This module can be viewed at the top of this page. This specific style of the module can only be used with this template with the template's css overrides. Publish your own content into each slide transition and for multiple slide transition effects, navigation arrows and also a drop down gallery tab that allows you to select a slide via a thumbnail. This module is fully responsive as well. The S5 Image and Content Fader v3 is powered by Mootools/Jquery by default but still includes the S5 Effects library and allows you to use it in a "legacy module" if you are experiencing script conflicts. Best of all it's free!

NOTE: Legacy mode will display all your images, titles and slide text but includes limited functionality thus it does not include navigation arrows or the new drop down gallery tab.

The layout of this template also contains a custom_2 module position that shows on top of the S5 Image and Content Fader (the white boxes on the left side). These are optional and the content area will show with wider if custom_2 is not used. S5 Image and Content Fader should be published to custom_1.

Features at a glance:


  • Responsive layout compatible
  • horizontal sliding transition
  • Choose between 4 slide transitions: Fade, Contiuous Horiztonal, Fade Slide Left, Continuous Vertical
  • Specify height and width of module

GATES - Gifted and Talented Educational Services

The mission of the Vicksburg Warren School District’s GATES program is to develop life-long, self-motivated learners.

 

The Vicksburg Warren School District provides a gifted education program for its INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED students in grades 2nd-6th. The gifted education program is designed to meet the individual needs of these children and are in addition to, and different from, the regular classroom educational program.

Gifted students require a specialized differentiated educational program which enables these students to realize their potential contribution to self and society. Criteria must be met for a student to be identified as intellectually gifted. GATES students are served for a minimum of 360 minutes per week through a pull-out program.

 

If you have any questions about the GATES program, please contact the District Gifted Coordinator, Connie West at 601.638.5122 ext. 128 or cwest@vwsd.org .
