School websites are no longer an after thought. We are long passed the days where your administrative assistant or PE teacher can do them in your free time. Gen-Z students are roaming the halls of every school from grades K-12 and their millennial parents expect your website to be their window into what’s happening at school.
We’re now in an age where both students and parents are accustomed to the web and the mobile world. They want to have access to current, timely information, where they want it and when they want it. Your school’s website doesn’t just need to look good, it needs to be filled with important content information, practically as it happens.
There are several companies out there that design school websites and mobile apps. Many of them take a cookie cutter approach and then let you have at it.
From the very first picture you want to upload, until that announcement that school’s closed for the summer, and beyond, New York edtech company, Educational Networks has you covered.
With Educational Networks it all starts with the photography. When your stake holders and community members walk through your internet door they expect popping, pretty images. Educational Networks doesn’t trust your newspaper staff to get this kind of work done. Sure they can help in producing content, but your first impression is important and for that, Educational Networks sends their own photographer to your school to capture it to look good on the web.
Once the photos are captured, Educational Networks works with your school step by step to custom design a website that reflects your school, your community and your culture. That means more than just matching color schemes to football uniforms.
Once the website is ready, and to your school’s liking, Educational Networks outfits it with SchoolSitePro, their custom content management system built specifically for schools. Many schools are using WordPress, if any content management system at all. WordPress isn’t in tune with the inner-workings of education.
With SchoolSitePro teachers are able to update their own classroom content and teacher pages. They can also post daily homework assignments, notices to parents, maintain calendars, create photo albums and stream video.
Where They Want It
The biggest part to a school’s web strategy today is the ability to have content delivered when and where their constituents want it and that means mobile. Content from your school’s website like, news and announcements, photo albums, videos, parent communication and more.
Educational Networks doesn’t take chances when it comes to up-time. Your school’s website will be hosted in their state of the art, New York data center. They give their school customers unlimited space so you never have to worry about photos and media. If your school takes 5,000 photos at every Friday night football game that’s fine with Educational Networks.
All of their services are backed by unlimited tech support.
