Nashua School District spruces up its online presence
The Nashua School District's new website makes it easier to find news, schedules and staff contact information.
The new $49,800 site, designed by the Santa Rosa, Calif.- based company Planeteria, was laid out to be more user-friendly and offer parents and the community easier access to news, information and staff contacts. And because the school website overhaul coincided with Nashua’s branding initiative, the district used the same color scheme and style as the Chamber of Commerce and city websites to give viewers a sense of continuity.
Like other members of the board, Van Twuyver was initially reluctant to change the site’s colors and the logo, a red A+ that was part of the word “Nashua.”
But ultimately, the board went with the tweaked logo and new colors — a yellow and orange mix signifying a sunrise and new beginning and an earthy green because, as Van Twuyver put it, “There were more important things to consider. ”
“It’s just much cleaner,” said Van Twuyver, who added that the old site was congested and difficult to wade through.
