District Launches New Website
The new site is designed to make it easier for staff, families, community members, and students to navigate all aspects of the District’s offerings and tools in a timely manner. The site has convenient drop-down tabs on the homepage to guide visitors to areas of interest such as Departments, Board of Education, For Families, Schools, and Community.
An animated rotator displays pictures highlighting students. Below it is a section for “quick links” that point families, students, staff, and community members to areas of the site that contain information particularly pertinent to their needs. For example, “Enrollment” takes you directly to the Student Enrollment information page on the website.
The home page also has news articles that will keep Castro Valley families and community members up to date on important developments in the District. The District and school sites also include sections featuring their Twitter and Facebook pages.
The new design incorporates a “responsive” layout that adapts to different devices (smartphones, tablets and desktop computers) and multiple web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari) for an optimal viewing experience with easy reading and navigation. The site was also designed to fulfill web accessibility requirements under the American Disabilities Act, making it accessible to individuals who have vision, hearing, and physical disabilities.
Please be patient as we are still working on formatting, cleanup, content updates, and updating relevant information so that we have the most up to date information posted. Please excuse our mess as we continue this new website cleanup.
Welcome to the new site!
