Forest Grove School Districts website has a whole new look


Internet fans who point their Web browsers to the Forest Grove School District’s home page these days are greeted by a color palette of turquoise, gray, green, beige and farmhouse red — not to mention a barrage of ever-changing photos depicting students using iPads, state-of-the-art science lab equipment and irrigation hoses.

What’s it all about? District Chief of Staff Connie Potter has been busy this summer revamping the site. Here are the major changes:

n The white navigation bar at the top of the page is the link for easy navigation of these pages. Users can backtrack to pages they just visited by clicking on the previous title in the white navigation bar.

n The green navigation bar contains general categories of information. When a Web user hover over a title, a drop-down menu will show any topics under that title.

n Users may click on the small "schoolhouse" icon in the upper left corner to return to the district home page.

n The three colored boxes in the left column labeled "Staff," "Students" and "Parents" include links to information useful to individuals in those three groups.

n Click on individual headlines in the "District News" module on the district home page to view the news article about that topic. Or, click on the "District News" headline to see a list of all news items.

n Click on an individual calendar event in the "Calendar of Events" module on the district home page to view details about that calendar event. Or click on the "Calendar of Events" headline to see the entire calendar.

n Web users can view all content on the district and school sites in a variety of languages. Click on the "world" icon in the top right of the page and use the scroll bar to choose a language

n The new web pages also have a mobile view option. Those viewing the website from a smart phone will see content formatted specifically to fit the mobile screen.
