The Spring ISD Communications Office is pleased to announce a refresh of its website homepage that will improve accessibility, improve the user experience, and add some additional creative flexibility to showcase district programs.
The most noticeable change for visitors will be a smaller image size on the carousel with the ability to pause any content that is scrolling or moving. In addition, the refresh adds a high contrast toggle for those who may not be able to perceive color. To ensure improved accessibility, the change allows for users to access content through keyboard navigation rather than clicking.
“Our district homepage is the front door to everything we offer in Spring ISD and we’re constantly looking at ways to create a better, more welcoming experience for our families, staff and community,” said Sylvia Wood, chief communications officer. “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to find and access our content because we have a lot of great stories to share here in Spring ISD.”
Wood said the homepage refresh is the first step in an ongoing process to make all Spring ISD and campus websites more accessible as defined by Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WGAG) 2.0, Level AA.
