web design for school districts
School websites that you control
Sagapixel build fast-loading, attractive, easy to navigate websites for schools. Unlike most large companies that employ proprietary content management systems that lock you to their services, we build rock-solid secure websites using WordPress.
By using an open-source CMS, your school district will have the flexibility to do whatever it would like with it now and down the road. In addition to offering you the flexibility to use any developer or hosting company that you like, future redesigns will not require the site to rebuilt from the ground up. This will result in greatly reduced long-term costs and present more options in terms of vendors to provide maintenance
Our websites are not only fast to load, attractive, and easy to navigate, but also cost less than sites offered by large competitors.
Our Website Development Process
Establish the Business Goals of Your Website
Most websites are built with a business goal in mind, yet developers at many web design companies seem to forget this. Our projects begin with gaining a solid understanding of the goals you wish to achieve through building or redesigning your website.
Choose References for Your Web Design Project
Once we have an idea of what your new website needs to accomplish, we need to explore different options of moving forward. Your website will be tailored to your brand, using your brand's color palette and typography, but there are a lot of different ways we can incorporate your style into a layout. We will review different websites with you to gain an idea of what you like and what will most effectively communicate the message of your new project.
Gather Assets for Your Web Development Project
The quality of your photos and graphics can make or break your website. Before we begin building, we will gather all of the assets that we will use on your website. This may involve finding a photographer or sending our in-house videographer to your site. It may involve planning your messaging and writing copy for you. All in all, this is the phase where we gather all of the parts that we need to successfully build your new website.
Depending on the option you choose for your web design project, we may do up to three different mockups of your project. This is the brainstorming phase of your project where we will present ideas for your website. We will publish the mockups online, where you will be able to view and discuss the options with your internal team.
Build Your Website on a Staging Domain
We build all of our websites on a staging domain that you will be able to view at any time. During this phase we will test your websites on a number of browsers and devices to ensure it works as it should.
Launch Your New Website
Once we are confident that the site is working properly and we receive final approval, your website goes live!
You will have a bank of video tutorials that will show you how to handle basic maintenance. They will walk you through basics such as user management, editing text and images, and updating the plugins that power your site.
