NEW look for PRSD websites

NEW look for PRSD websites

June 13, 2017 – For immediate release
Peace River School Division (PRSD) will launch a new look to its websites this afternoon. The divisional and school websites have undergone a visual refresh and at 1:30 pm, the new sites will go live.

“The sites have a new look and feel while for the most part, we have kept the content and navigation within the new sites the same” says Board Chair Darren Kuester. “Ensuring that we continue to advance in technology and communication is very important to us as online communication is how the majority of our communities engage and seek information.”

Some highlights of the visual refresh include a modernized layout, drop-down navigation menus, the school directory is now sorted by community, and the addition of a quick reference to common documents which new families are looking for is front and center on the new divisional site.

Popular features that remain the same include the “portals” for students, parents and staff where information relevant to various users is stored, quick links to school bus updates, the school calendar and social media platforms remain on the divisional and school homepages.
 
The visual refresh to the PRSD sites was designed by PathFive, who have been PRSD’s website provider since 2011. Pathfive (formerly known as Dreamstalk Studios) was chosen by PRSD’s Website Review Committee based on their extensive experience working with school divisions and their reputable level of one-on-one support to schools.  

The new websites can be viewed at www.prsd.ab.ca.
