Queen Creek USD unveils a new website



Queen Creek Unified School District website has a fresh new face, according to a press release. Visitors to qcusd.org will find a new redesign.

“Our new website represents a key element of our strategic plan and the achievement of one of this year’s district goals, which is to improve communication between the district and all our stakeholders,” Superintendent Dr. Perry Berry said in the release.

The site provides an updated and modernized place for parents, students and community members to locate information about the district – anytime, anywhere, according to a press release.

The new site offers many of the same features visitors are used to. Among its many features, the new design is “responsive,” meaning that the layout adapts to the visitor’s device (from smaller mobile phones to larger desktop computer monitors). It provides an optimal viewing experience-easy reading and navigation with a minimum need for resizing and panning.

Included in the redesign was easier navigation and grouping of like information to for the community to use. Building, department, and staff contact information, directions to district school buildings, and a website search feature. Most information on the site is categorized by major topics: Our Schools, Why QC, Parents, Students, Community, Employees, and Careers. Here’s a snapshot of what visitors can find under the navigation:
•Connect — This section (found at the top of each page) provides icon links to the district’s social media profiles for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
•Home — Relevant announcements and brief updates will be provided district wide on the homepage and school-specific on each building page.
•Parents — Information and resources to help parents stay connected and informed are gathered in one place, such as useful district links, school calendars, bus route information, before and after school care, child nutrition and school menus, and more.
•Students — A “one-stop shop” for useful links to help students succeed, such as links to Gradebook, test prep and more.
•Community — Outreach, brief updates happening in the community and how to get involved.
•Employees and Careers — HR overview, job openings and how to apply.

The new site was under development for the past few months and was produced in partnership with school webmasters.
