Sarasota County Schools Set to Unveil New Website

SARASOTA COUNTY, February 28, 2019 – Sarasota County Schools will soon be unveiling a new look on its district website. Debuting on Thursday, March 7, the new www.SarasotaCountySchools.net will showcase a fresh, clean design, more user-friendly features and intuitive navigation elements, among other changes. Parents are the primary audience and the school district conducted focus groups to obtain parent feedback prior to completing the site.

“We look forward to sharing our enhanced website with the community,” commented Jeff Maultsby, assistant superintendent and chief operating officer of Sarasota County Schools. “Our website is a valuable resource for key information, and its new format will enable online visitors to find desired content faster. Out of respect for our online guests’ time, we thoughtfully reconfigured our new website to be reflective not only of the district’s priorities, but also of the key focus areas that matter most to our visitors, especially parents. We are confident our website will continue to be informative and inspire the community, as well as those afar, to take note of our innovative, A-rated school district.”

Exciting new website features:

  • User-friendly interface with a refined design, in keeping with mobile devices
  • Menu items have been reduced for simpler navigation
  • ‘Find it Fast’ menu, which will help parents find our most popular areas
  • Cloud-hosted by Blackboard, which allows us improved integration into our technology apps
