New District & School Websites Launching June 2019

New Gilbert Public Schools website launches June 2019 As staff and students return to class following the summer break, they will notice a newly designed website launched for Gilbert Public Schools and each of our schools. The new site(s) will feature a modern, efficient design that showcases our incredible campuses and students while providing easy access to the information our students and parents need.  The new site(s) will launch by the end of June 2019.

The redesign process began more than a year ago following staff, student and community feedback. Following the selection of Blackboard Communications as our website and mass notification system partner, a committee of key stakeholders was established to guide the design and implementation process.

Over the course of six months, district Communication and Technology staff worked closely with the vendor to develop a design that represents the district's brand and meets the needs identified.

By the end of June 2019, the district and our community will begin to benefit from new websites and a new and improved mass notification system for communicating with our parents and staff via email, text, and website alerts.

The innovation does not stop with the creation of new websites. As we all adjust to something new, we are keen to receive your feedback.  Over the next school year, our district Communication and Technology staff will continue to work with Blackboard Communications to refine the website and mass notification tools. We also plan to launch a new mobile app. Ongoing updates over the summer and beyond will be communicated through our district website and social media.

We thank our community for their continued support as we work to bring our community a much-improved experience regarding our school websites and communication systems.
