Lake Washington School District, comprised of more than 50 schools, is located in Redmond Washington. The city of Redmond is also home to Microsoft, and growing at a rapid pace. With the many job seekers and new hires visiting the area, the redesigned website had to showcase and provide information about the district and the communities in which the schools are located. An equally important objective was to provide information to current constituent groups in a way that was logical and easily accessible.
The end product features a visually rich homepage that walks new site visitors thought the school district's mission. The site features numerous design enhancements to make the site easy to navigate and prove to its tech-savvy community that it too, is tech-savvy. At the very top of the page, role-based navigation, calendar, news and search features provide current constituents with a variety of access points into the site. A jump to school feature in the footer provides easy access to individual school websites.
