    New Website Redesign | District & School Websites | Live Summer 2021!

     

    About this Project

    The SPS websites are the primary communication tool for staff and families and acts as the digital hub for district and school educational resources and information. Serving over 100 schools and close to 53,000 students, SPS sites need to work for students, current and prospective families, staff, and community members.

    The project goals center user experience, and include: increase accessibility and community feedback in the final design, improve navigation and search functionality to help readers find resources, improve access with a mobile-first design, build a user-friendly system for content publishers, and provide a more stable web hosting environment – ensuring reliability of services and that our sites are 'always on.'

    What is included?

    This project includes the district and school websites. It will not change tools such as The Source, Schoology, or Clever the student portal.

    Why are we making this change?

    Providing consistent and predictable updates has been a challenge with the current website host and content management system (CMS).

    The web services team is excited that the new system will provide ease of use for the district's 500 editors who maintain the individual school sites, the SPS staff website, and the public district site.
