Falconer Elementary School
The site I designed for Falconer Elementary–a technology magnet school in Chicago–launched last week. We started by streamlining the homepage–balancing out a photographic slider with an interactive calendar, news and announcements, and clear navigation. We integrated Google Translate into the footer so the site can easily be translated into five different languages to meet the diverse demographic.
We aimed to make the site a useful tool for parents, students and teachers, pulling out resources in the navigation for each group. To improve communication between the school and its families, we integrated social media and brought in email newsletters.
