WEST GEAUGA, Ohio, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- West Geauga Schools' new website will increase efficiency, collaboration and parent engagement for the district.
The website, built on a Content Management System created specifically for K-12 schools by eSchoolView, streamlines information so visitors can find what they need more readily. The improved navigation of West G's site is displayed front and center and highlights district news, initiatives and information in high demand.
This site was previously hosted by SchoolPointe before eSchoolView overhauled the design. eSchoolView, based in Columbus, OH, serves hundreds of schools across the country, from the Midwest to California and New York to Georgia.
"We have to offer tools that help educators connect with parents and the community so they can focus on their number one priority: academic growth," Executive Director Rob O'Leary said. "Study after study shows a positive correlation between involved parents and a child's performance in school. We build bridges between home and school."
West Geauga officials wanted to work with a vendor with the capability of incorporating various tools into one cost-effective package. The site now features a custom design and is fully responsive for optimal mobile viewing along with an app that anyone can download for free.
The CMS platform the site is built on was selected for its ease of use; posting information or creating pages is as simple as working in a word processing document. Staff from across the district will have access to the site and teachers will have the ability to create their own pages.
The eSchoolView Content Management System (CMS) has more than 20 components. News articles, videos, photo galleries, surveys, quizzes and more can easily be added to any page or section of the site.
"We created -- and provide routine updates to -- our CMS from direct customer input," O'Leary said. "We've gotten off to a great start in West G."
eSchoolView offers personalized training and support as part of all of its competitively priced contracts. Key staff will be taught how to use the system who will train others in the district; support thereafter is unlimited and available by phone, email, virtual sessions and video.
eSchoolView provides services to K-12 school districts of all kinds: public, private, faith-based and charters. The company is one of the fast growing in the nation. It is currently 1409 on Inc. Magazine's 500/5000 list.
