Redesigning the Seattle Public Schools district and school websites

This summer our district and school websites are receiving a major facelift.

Our first priority for the website redesign project is to ensure families, students, staff, and community can easily find critical district and school resources.

The user-focused project has incorporated website satisfaction survey data, website analytics, feedback from the web refresh working group, user testing and public feedback to improve website navigation, placement of key elements for families and students, and mobile-friendly modern design. Thank you to the many people who participated over this last year!

Your feedback and ideas help our community move forward. If you ever have questions or concerns, you may contact us with our website feedback form below.
