Serving approximately 950 students and four schools, East Granby Public Schools will unveil a district-wide responsive website from Rediker Software this fall. With the addition of RediSite, the East Granby School District will have all the tools it needs to be more successful online. By simplifying website management and providing administrators and teachers with the online tools they need to do their jobs, communicating with the community will be effortless.
RediSite provides schools and districts with an attractive and affordable website that delivers an optimal viewing experience on any device. The site automatically adjusts to any size screen for easy reading and navigation on smartphones, tablets and computers without having to maintain a separate mobile site.
RediSite websites are built with the user-friendly content management system (CMS) concrete5. Rather than relying on a webmaster to make changes to a site, or navigate a cumbersome user interface, RediSite websites allow any user with permission to easily add, edit or reposition content. Users maintain a high level of control over any changes needed while still ensuring the site’s responsive integrity.
“I am enjoying the flexibility of customization within the site editor, as well as the easy transfer of site content,” said Steve Mosher, Technology Specialist for East Granby Public Schools. “And although we are early in our implementation, we are enjoying transitioning to a 100% Rediker product (SIS, Website, PlusPortals, etc),” Mosher added.
RediSite websites are integrated with the company’s student information system, AdminPlus, and the parent/student web portals, PlusPortals, to create a seamless total solution for schools. Members of a school community with RediSite such as East Granby’s, can directly log into PlusPortals from any page on the school’s website to access grades, attendance records, lesson plans, and interactive classroom features such as online discussions, quizzes, homework submissions, and email. The school’s Redisite calendar is also linked to PlusPortals so school events are only entered once but appear in both places.
“Once we have finished the transition, we will have an all-in-one integration with RediSite, PlusPortals, Online Forms, and other Rediker Software products. With this seamless integration, our families and students will be able to sign in to their Portals account from nearly any page of RediSite,” he said. And with the login form being encrypted, it will ensure East Granby parents’ and students’ information stays secure.
“I look forward to the continued improvements and enhancements that Rediker will implement in the coming years,” Mosher added.
Rediker President Andrew Anderlonis noted, “The RediSite solution has created a great-looking, professional website for East Granby schools that is mobile-friendly and easy to edit. We are pleased the district is looking to the future for the best solution for timely and powerful communications.”
RediSite is available to any school or district using any student information system. To learn more, visit http://www.rediker.com/solutions/responsive-school-websites.
