Students, families, staff, school administration and all community stakeholders will find the refreshed School District of Wausaukee website a more useful hub of information than ever before. The enhanced website helps visitors quickly and intuitively access the information, resources, and people they need. Visitors and community members can weigh in on surveys on current topics (such as daycare in school and community enrichment classes), access district newsletters, see school calendars and a welcome message from Superintendent Ann Kox.
“We’ve designed our website as a portal to welcome everyone to our schools, greeting visitors with photos of the smiling faces of students involved in band, sports, project-based learning activities and other events that define the tone and spirit of the Wausaukee community,” says Kox.
Hosted and designed by the communication management system, School Loop, the School District of Wausaukee website is a gathering place for the school community, aggregating news about topics such as open house, family information packets, student deadlines for service opportunities, class rings, and more. Easily accessible resources also include information about district staff— from food services personnel and library media specialists to teachers, administrators and school board members. “We were very pleased with the support, training and ideas the School Loop staff provided to update and strengthen our site,” Kox shares.
For parents new to the district, the website offers a quick way to learn about each school, including academic report cards, student assessment, individual teacher websites, clubs, sports, services, and parent guides. The website also provides links to community resources, such as the Amberg Historical Society and Marinette County Crimestoppers. The website ensures equity of access, as well, allowing visitors who speak one of 100 select languages to have the entire site translated for them by Google.
“Wausaukee schools are a very important part of our local community, and having an online presence is a powerful and necessary tool for communication,” says Kox. “A website that reflects the district’s dedication to engaging all stakeholders in building a sustainable educational institution that supports excellence in lifelong learning and global awareness is as crucial to our professional success as to any other digital-age enterprise.”
