A newly redesigned website has launched for the Liberty Central School District, after 14 months of planning, design, production, and content migration. While the new site retains the vast amount of information that was available on the old site, key new features include a cleaner, more attractive design, with enhanced search and navigation features. Another new feature is a searchable staff directory that allows users to search for faculty and staff by first name, last name, school, email, or phone number. The directory can be found under “contact us” on the homepage.
All district news will be posted on the homepage, and automatically archived by month and school. Visitors will notice most information is categorized by six major topics: About Us, Academics, Athletics, Board of Education, Departments & Services and News. Clicking each of these tabs will bring visitors to a new page with several sub-heads of information relevant to the main title.
All school pages have a consistent design and organization. This will help visitors know where to look to find particular information and to keep visitors connected to the overall district site as they navigate between school and district pages. Announcements pertaining to specific buildings will continue to be posted on individual school homepages.
The new design also incorporates a responsive layout that adapts to different screen viewers (smart phones, tablets and desktop computers), as well as multiple web browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari). As a result, there should be minimum need for resizing, panning or scrolling.
The district welcomes any feedback from the community about its new website. Email the Liberty Communications Specialist, Alyssa Pagano, with any questions, comments or suggestions.
The new website was produced in partnership with the Capital Region BOCES Communications Service.
