I am creating a site for a school that needs to be updated frequently by teachers. As I am not going to be around to do this, is there any shareware or freeware program that they could use that will allow them to easily insert updated pictures and text to an existing template. I am aware of ASP and ColdFusion but not to sure how to go about it.
Any help would be really appreciated

In my opinion, the best solution would be to create a database with the information that will be updated frequently. Dynamically pull these items in the code with PHP or ASP. That way, the individual will just have to update the database.

Do you know of any shareware or freeware that I could download that would allow me to do this?

If you use PHP, you can build the database in MySQL. It is completely free and a very good database. You can also download PHP from www.php.net. You will probably also want to download the Apache webserver from www.apache.org so that you can run the PHP from your local machine while you build the site.
If you use ASP, you will have to either use Access or SQL for your database. SQL is not free. You will need either IIS or Personal Web Server in order to run ASP on your local machine.
I hope this helps.
