Proven Structure M1 for School Districts

Distant Horizon specializes in web site design for school districts. We treat a school district like the large corporation it is, with many stakeholders and a definite need for clear identity and professionalism. The district site supports a framework for each school to have its own identity and navigational structure, while still remaining faithful to the overall, unified design of the district as a whole.

When launched with its default design skeleton, the system can be live within 24 hours on a new or existing domain and new content contributors can be productively adding content with no programming or HTML knowledge with about 20 minutes of training. This system is built for speed, reliability, ease-of-use, and large amounts of content.

School-Specific Features

In addition to all of the features of our corporate content management system, PSM1 for Schools has tools designed specifically for school districts and individual schools.

Individual Schools

With our unified school district sites, individual schools belonging to the district have their own pages and navigational structure, allowing for each school to have its own unique identity with school colors, mascots, or other branding, without compromising the overall branding or structure of the district site.

Some notable features include:

  • No limit on number of navigational structures
  • No limit on number of pages
  • Inherent mobile support that uses, but also goes beyond, bootstrap and responsive approaches to content delivery
  • One click publish/unpublish - pages are never deleted, they are archived to prevent accidental deletion
  • Navigational structures can be swapped or relocated on the fly with no programming
  • Four levels of depth with universal leveling that makes it easy to reorganize content as volume and complexity increases.
  • Content elements can be sent from one page to another to avoid redundant data entry or "cut and paste" labor
  • Each site is deployed as its own codeset, allowing total flexibility and no hoping and waiting a cloud-based software vendor will roll out improvements
