UCPS launches newly redesigned website
Union County Public Schools is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned website.
The school system developed its website with parents, staff, students and community members in mind.
UCPS recognizes that communication is a key component to its operation. The district and all school websites have been updated with a modern design and technology to improve communication.
Now hosted by industry leader Schoolwires, Inc., the new website has features to enhance organization, functionality and access to key information. The design is more user-friendly, easier to navigate and places feature stories, multimedia presentations, upcoming events and announcements in prominent areas.
With the launch of the new site, UCPS is continuing to maintain its brand and demonstrate uniformity across schools with common templates and consistent placement of content.
The new website also has a responsive design, which means that content on the website will adapt to the majority of browsers and mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.
To help our community stay connected while on the go, UCPS is also offering its first district mobile app. Staff and parents will be able to access feature stories, calendars and information from the district’s homepage by using their smartphone or mobile device. Each school will not have its own mobile app. The Union County Public Schools app is free and will be available through iTunes and Google Play app stores in mid-October.
The design of the website was a team effort. The communications team received input and feedback from parents, staff and community members. School website editors were instrumental in preparing the school websites for the launch. We will continue to update the website to best serve our parents, staff and community.
In the coming months, more information will be released to help parents customize their mobile access to information at their child’s school.
