Geneva CUSD 304 District homepage

Areas of contribution:
Initially enhanced the district’s 11 Dreamweaver-based, static web sites but eventually moved to a CMS solution. Researched CMS vendors/solutions then presented to team the choices and coordinated vendor visits – eventually decided on eSchoolView. Was point person for the redesign of all 11 websites. Worked closely with each school and principals to make sure requirements for all grade levels were met. The last 4 months of the project I pretty much was the lead because of all the technical setup and content updates needed for the websites to be live. I also developed and help train staff on using the new website CMS. The website theme was also my design because I was not happy with the vendor’s designs. The current website has gone through a refresh but its design is still 80% my work. The refresh launched a couple months before I left working at the school district. Once the new websites were launched I frequently had to augment pages with custom CSS, JavaScript and HTML to improve the appearance or functionality. I also helped build the district’s web store navigation and built graphic elements when I worked with the folks at PushCoin.com.

In addition to website work I also edited video and audio for the monthly school board meetings. I compressed the videos for web and uploaded them to a Vimeo account (which I setup for the district to use). Lastly I updated standalone training programs (Flash based) for staff.
