WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington School Superintendent Dr. Glenn Brand recently announced to the School Committee his intention to have the school and district websites redesigned.
“Over the course of the last year and a half, it has become quite clear that there is a fair degree of dissatisfaction by our stakeholders — including both staff and our parents/guardians community — regarding the current state of our websites,” Brand wrote in a memo to the Committee. “This includes concerns with the functionality, navigation, layout, and overall content.”
Brand noted that Director of Technology & Digital Learning Ken Lord has begun to explore viable alternative web platforms, which an eye on redesigning the websites during the summer of 2020.
“We are committed to re-building our online presence in the upcoming months with plans to have a new web presence in place by the start of the 2020-2021 school year,” added Brand in a recent email to parents.
Before any website redesign, Brand wants to hear from parents/guardians, teachers, staff and students in the upper grades to learn what “long-overdue and much needed improvements” they’d like see.
“In preparation for a future redesign of our web presence, Mr. Lord and I are committed to collecting input from all stakeholders regarding our current websites and possibilities for areas of improvement, desired content, and layout,” said Brand.
