Meriden Public Schools provides an education to 8,600 students across 12 schools and alternative educational programs in Meriden, Connecticut.
The Meriden Public Schools has been a client of Web Solutions, a Meriden-based business, since 1999, and the two have worked on numerous projects over the years, including developing several new websites.
When Meriden Public Schools was due for a new website to enter the 2019-2020 school year, Web Solutions built a mobile-responsive site in v4 of its Content Management System, with a new design to reflect the updated brand and color palette of the Meriden Public Schools.
The previous version was very utilitarian, but the new version offers a blend between providing information about the district and showcasing Meriden Public Schools by sharing the work of staff and students, highlighting awards and accomplishments, and giving site visitors a better sense of everything Meriden Public Schools has to offer.
The site offers separate landing pages for schools, as well as some animated elements and other useful features. “The photo rotator on the home pages allows us to highlight the work of the students and teachers in the district, the global alert allows us to provide timely notifications, and overall the site is visually pleasing and easy to navigate,” said Barbara Haeffner, Director of Teaching and Innovation at Meriden Public Schools.
“The staff at Web Solutions is fantastic,” said Haeffner. “Everyone is responsive to our needs, provides guidance and advice regarding best practices, and is always available to provide technical support.”
