This summer Stirling Technologies, a full-service web marketing firm, designed and launched district-wide websites for Weston, Swampscott and Tewksbury Public Schools. With the help of STACKR, a product of Stirling Technologies, designers were able to transform the outdated websites into a user-friendly experience to better serve each of their communities’ audiences: students, parents, and faculty.
Thanks to the team at Stirling, all three district’s now have a new, modernized website with a consistent brand across all their schools. The responsive, mobile-first designs guarantee that regardless which device a user is visiting the site from, the content will be adjusted accordingly and presented in a way that is best suited for the end user. The fully custom websites also consist of sleek cutting-edge elements. Some features include a simple navigation hierarchy, site-wide alerts, and a calendar which you can use to subscribe to events by a school. The new platform is very user-friendly for staff to continuously make updates on a regular basis and keep everyone informed. The built-in news and social media integration also help maintain communication with parents and students on latest events, announcements, and more.
When commenting on the project, Christopher Malone, Tewksbury Superintendent, states, "STACKR is great to work with, they customized support for our staff and stayed with us every step of the way. We are pleased with the product and most of all the on going support. Our district is better because we chose to partner with STACKR."
Lytania Mackey Knowles, Administrator of Digital Learning & Educational Technology of Swampscott, says “Working with Stirling has been a wonderful process. We started about a year out from the project and quickly decided that we should go full steam ahead and do the entire district at once. They rose to the challenge and met our due dates for the summer. The website looks a million times better. We sought out a company that had a personal touch. We did not want a huge company where you work with different people every time you call. It has been so much easier to have project managers to work with and a small team of dedicated professionals. Every email, every call, every meeting, it was the same people. In addition, they led focus groups in our district and that was a vital source of information. We learned the top things parents, students, teachers, and community members wanted from the site and Stirling was able to help us make that a reality. Our new site is vibrant, dynamic, organized, and provides clear information for all stakeholders. My personal favorite is the Google Calendars that are on the site. It makes managing our district events so much easier and we saved money by no longer needing to pay a vendor for a calendar program! “
