The Weymouth Public Schools News Blog is a news blog and social media portal for all of the school district’s most up-to-date news and information. A news portal is a quick and efficient way to get out important news updates when a full school district web redesign is not an option.
The site design process had input from administrators and staff in the district as well as school committee members. It features a clean, user-friendly and mobile responsive layout that allows for easy navigation throughout the blog. It can also be accessed easily on all computers, cell phones and tablets. In addition to the easy navigation throughout the blog, users can easily access the district’s main website on the homepage by clicking the “District Website” tab.
Additionally, the news blog is integrated into the district’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and will automatically broadcast news blog content onto the feeds. For those who don’t actively monitor social media, visitors to the site can sign up to receive email alerts that are automatically delivered to inboxes when a new item is posted.
