September 2021

Since launching the new Seattle Public Schools district and school websites in August, we have welcomed feedback from hundreds of families, students, and staff. These messages — both positive feedback and constructive criticism — are helping SPS improve our websites.

Thank you to everyone who has shared thoughts and suggestions through the web services team Let’s Talk feedback form

从一开始,这个项目就受到了学生和家庭反馈的启发、引导和完善.

The web services team is committed to continuous improvement, and we know website management and enhancement is never done.

基于这些反馈,我们对设计、功能和内容进行了更新 SPS websites.

其中一些变化包括更新字体、大小和网页标题的规模. 该团队正在创建下拉菜单,这样访问者可以快速进入学校网站的页面. 我们继续与我们的易访问性测试人员合作,以确保我们的网站对所有的web读者都是可访问的,无论他们使用何种类型的设备访问我们的网站.

我们为我们的网络编辑发起了一系列新的研讨会,他们在我们的大校区的系和学校网站上工作. The workshops help demonstrate and teach best practices in web content publishing.

This October, 当我们准备推出地区网站的多语言特色时,团队将与我们的多语言家庭进行可用性研究.

Website improvement work is never done and we are always looking for ways to improve. Please keep sending us your feedback via Let’s Talk!

About this Project

The SPS 网站是员工和家庭的主要沟通工具,是地区和学校教育资源和信息的数字枢纽. Serving over 100 schools and close to 53,000 students, SPS 网站需要为学生、当前和未来的家庭、工作人员和社区成员工作.

The project goals center user experience, and include: increase accessibility and community feedback in the final design, improve navigation and search functionality to help readers find resources, improve access with a mobile-first design, build a user-friendly system for content publishers, 并提供一个更稳定的网络托管环境——确保服务的可靠性,确保我们的网站“永远在线”.’

Project Phases

Throughout the phases of the project, 过去和将来都有机会分享你的意见和优先权.

新的设计是基于用户的反馈和通过采访学生收集的信息, families, community partners, and staff, surveys, usability testing, and website analytics. 我们优先与远离教育公正的学生和家庭接触.

Phase 1 November – December 2020年:对远离教育公正的学生和家庭进行访谈和小组讨论, survey of all SPS website users, and web analytics review.

Phase 2 January – March 2021:导航研究,发现逻辑导航结构和网页分组(信息架构).

Phase 3 March – April 2021:设计和开发外观和感觉与可用性研究,以确保导航, categories, and design meet the needs of our families, students, staff, partners and broader community.

Phase 4 April – August 2021: Content migration and new website goes live! New sites will go live in August.

New Website Features

What is included?

This project includes the district and school websites.

It will not change tools such as The Source, Schoology, or Clever the student portal.

Why are we making this change?

对于当前的网站主机和内容管理系统(CMS)来说,提供一致和可预测的更新一直是一个挑战。.

网络服务团队兴奋地发现,新系统将为地区的500位维护个别学校网站的编辑提供易用的服务, the SPS staff website, and the public district site.

Putting Students and Families First

重新设计的指导问题是“我们如何设计一个以目标为中心的网络体验。, needs, and challenges of students and families who are furthest from educational justice?”

通过毫无歉意地集中体验和参与学生和有色人种家庭, the project directly supports the goals of our strategic plan Seattle Excellence.

In November and December, 我们的社区参与了一项全呼叫网络调查,该调查被翻译成六种语言. Nearly 4,000 total people participated.

该团队还对初高中学生进行了一系列的焦点小组, African American families, Native families, and families supported by Amharic, Cantonese, Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese interpreters. 以及与支持远离教育公正的家庭的工作人员和社区组织的访谈.

Throughout the process, web服务团队与这些社区成员重新合作,分享他们的反馈如何被纳入设计,并确保设计通过用户测试响应家庭的需求.

网络团队将在2021年秋季再次与这些家庭见面,并分享另一项全呼叫网站满意度和反馈调查,以寻找改善的机会.

Key Redesign Priorities Based on User Research

  • Navigation: improve navigation to make information easier to find.
  • Content and Design: design needs to highlight important resources for students and families.
  • Visuals and Icons: use more imagery and video to help readers find information.
  • Language Support关键内容翻译的缺乏或翻译的不准确造成了用户的困惑,使他们感到不受支持,处于不利地位.
  • Don’t Change Everything:一些资源,例如“选择学校”和“学生家庭门户网站”的位置,都很好用.
