The district website is the first place to get information about our schools, and is the first impression for prospective families or staff.
The website isn’t just for people who might be coming to school—it’s a hub for students, staff, families and the entire school community.
The 5.0 version of the district website uses responsive design and features district and school calendars that synch with Google, an interactive staff directory, robust search, and an easy-to-find “Quick Links” that include some of the features users need access to most according to Google Analytics of the current site.
A year-long project, we worked with a committee of parents, employees, and residents to develop a site that meets our community's needs. The committee helped select our web vendor, and helped determine navigation, design and content. We worked to create a clean, interactive, mobile-friendly website that can serve as a one-stop shop where families, students and residents can get all their questions answered, and quickly connect to portals to view class assignments and grades, pay fees, report attendance, and more.
We've done our best to anticipate where things make sense. However, the best way to improve a website is to get feedback from users - so we welcome feedback on how we can continue to improve the site! Anyone can send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The website is just one of the new connection tools that Mason launched this year. Additionally, the district has a new Learning Management System, Schoology, a new online parent portal, Home Access Center, a new electronic flyer tool, Peachjar, and a new electronic form tool, Final Forms.
