Spartanburg County School District 1 is looking to eSchoolView's Charlotte's office to relaunch its website with a new, tailor-made design.
eSchoolView, an award-winning company that created it easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) specifically for schools, opened its North Carolina branch just about a year ago. Spartanburg SD 1 is the company’s first client in South Carolina.
Spartanburg’s new site should launch in early 2016. It will feature new and improved navigation, Google calendar integration and an enhanced responsive design that is compatible with hand-held browsers. The mobile version of the site will include real-time news, alerts, schedules and contact information.
“We provide a number of tools and services — such as mobility and calendaring — to our clients so they can increase efficiency within their districts,” eSchoolView’s Executive Director Rob O'Leary said. “This new site will streamline a number of processes so the administration and staff can focus more on delivering the best education it can to its students.”
Spartanburg’s site will also incorporate active directory integration, a centralized system that manages user data, security and distributed resources while operating with other directories.
eSchoolView builds custom websites for public, private, charter and faith-based K-12 schools and creates other education management products. Its CMS platform also expands a school system’s reach through the ability to embed blogs, surveys, RSS feeds, e-newsletters, podcasts and videos.
“We build custom websites,” O’Leary said, “but our main goal is to build more effective relationships between school systems and their families.”
OneView, one of eSchoolView's newest products aimed at enhancing parent engagement, is a one-of-a-kind solution to manage student data. It combines parent portal features, athletic forms, online enrollment for new students and forms for currently enrolled students in one complete package. OneView eliminates the need for parents and teachers to have multiple accounts.
eSchoolView was created in 2008. Since then, its revenue growth lands the company near the top third (at 1907) of Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. for the second consecutive year.
