New FHSD Websites

The Francis Howell School District (FHSD) is proud to announce that the District and all school websites now have a new and improved look! FHSD has negotiated a contract agreement to provide a new template for all 25 District websites, including Vacation Station and the employee intranet. The other good news is that the District was also able to negotiate a lower rate, saving money and improving websites at the same time.

The new website template has a responsive web design (RWD), meaning that webpages can be viewed in response to the size of the screen used by the viewer. Text, graphics, and images will all be displayed correctly, no matter what device patrons are using. Analytics confirm that more than half of the visitors to FHSD websites are using their smartphone or mobile device for access, and RWD will make the new templates easier to view and navigate. The Content Management System (CMS) used to create and post content on the website will not change, so website administrators and teachers who have webpages will not need to be retrained for the new templates.

The new websites are intended to provide a better user interface with improved visuals and navigation, all while costing the District less money – a “win-win” scenario for everyone involved!
