Featured Website Design of the Week: 09/12/19
Lauderdale County School District in Mississippi is Edlio’s site of the week! This recently launched site features an engaging homepage and beautiful corresponding school sites. Your school’s homepage is almost always the central hub for communication in your education community. Our team loves how Lauderdale County School District has actively made their homepage incredibly engaging through the use of widgets and action verbs. Website visitors can easily subscribe to the newsletter using the form widget on the left side, and can also quickly view the Strategic Plan using the button widget on the right. Additionally, the district’s use of action verbs like “Watch Our Latest Video” and “Check back often” on the bottom of the homepage help encourage visitors to interact with the site.
Outside of the district site, our team also loves how all of the corresponding school websites mimic the district’s design while also adding in elements that make them unique. Each school’s website incorporates their spirit colors, logo, and one-of-a-kind content, helping students feel at home in their particular school, yet still connected to the district.
Lastly, the Edlio staff really admires that each member of the district has a picture in the Staff Directory. Although this may seem small, it helps put a face to the person you may have talked to on the phone, creating a more connected and personal feel throughout the community.
