Shawnee Mission School District is the third-largest district in Kansas, serving more than 27,000 students and 4,300 employees. With a vast and diverse community spread across 14 cities, improving school- to-home communications and brand was a top priority. According to the district, the biggest improvement has been that 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. 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.
“Finalsite collaborated with us to solve some challenging problems we had. They were great to work with, and we could not have done this without them.”
