WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AUGUST 7, 2018) — The Williamsport Area School District announced the launch of its new website tonight.

Using Watsontown-based marketing firm MojoActive, the website was built using the latest design features with a more responsive interface, is sleeker and more intuitive to provide an improved online experience.

Along with MojoActive, the six-month project was co-led by the district’s public relations and technology departments. Last winter, with input from stakeholder surveys, a district committee examined the site to determine its future with a new structure, function and purpose.

With enhanced features and functionality, the content-rich website was constructed with not only the user-experience in mind but also with a primary focus on the district’s mission of “developing responsible citizens through excellence in education.”

The new website was completely re-constructed to give visitors a more comprehensive overview of the district and the opportunities available here to students. Each page has been streamlined to provide easier navigation for district families, employees, the public and prospective families. It also was brought into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which will allow those with visual and physical disabilities to access content.

“We’re excited about our new website launch,” said Superintendent Dr. Timothy S. Bowers. “We believe the website’s new capabilities and features will allow our visitors to have a more informative online experience of what we offer as a school district.”

WASD’s new website will be updated on a regular basis with district news and events. It is located at the same address: www.wasd.org.
