While many students, parents and staff enjoy their well-deserved summer holidays, staff at the Louis Riel School Division office have been hard at work refreshing Division, school and affiliate websites. The new look, which focuses on home page design, took effect in early July and includes a cleaner look that transfers well on mobile devices, a twitter widget, and other improvements to the user interface.
Clarke Hagan, Director of Information Systems, says the redesigned website is one of many tools— including the Parent Portal, Student 360 Portal, and social media—that LRSD leverages to communicate with parents, students, staff and the wider community. "We are constantly reflecting on how we can improve our end user's experience and thank everyone for all the feedback we have received so far," he says.
Hagan hints that another communications project will be announced this fall and parents should stay tuned.
