Palo Alto Unified School District

The Palo Alto Unified School District’s web site serves a combined audience of Palo Alto Unified School District employees and community members. It also supports the Superintendent’s efforts at the national level by serving as a strategic information source.

The Challenge:

Replace an informally evolved web site serving a combined audience of Palo Alto Unified School District employees and community members with a formal, public site for the District.

Simplified navigation focuses on three primary user groups – students, parents, and the local community – in order to minimize the effort required to locate information relevant to each audience. The design expands on this local focus, using a polished look and feel to convey the District's "Excellence by Design" mission within the immediate community, while standing as an example to watchers the world over that PAUSD is a leader in its field.
