Stunning Design Meets Simplified Editing

According to the district, the biggest improvement has been that Composer, Finalsite’s Content Management System, is so easy to use, and the design is so much more current and impressive than before.

“It communicates the level of excellence the Shawnee Mission School District maintains,” said Shawna Samuel, Director of Communications.

Mission Accomplished

After a bumpy project with another vendor, Shawnee Mission came to Finalsite mid-deployment to get their project back on track. With big goals in mind, SMSD worked closely with Finalsite to launch a custom district website, and another 44 individual school websites in six months.

With an improved design and user experience, the new site is a true representation of the district’s brand.
