Website Content Standards

The Seattle Public Schools Website Stewardship and Standards aims to accomplish three things: 

  • Support the vision, goals, and values of Seattle Public Schools.
  • Assist web editors in creating digital content that complies with SPS rules, standards, and legal requirements.
  • Support user-centered SPS websites.

Students and Families Come First – The prioritized audiences for the public district websites (district and schools) are families and students. All content on these sites is created and maintained with their needs in mind. Staff-only resources should be published on MySPS or other staff digital platforms such as SharePoint.
