Introducing New SVSD District Website

The Snoqualmie Valley School District is expanding its electronic communications capabilities with the launch of a new, enhanced district website and school websites. At the same time, the District is adding a Facebook page and Twitter feed to expand its reach through the use of social media.

The aim of the new website, which is hosted by Schoolwires, is to provide a seamless online experience for all stakeholders -- with ease of access to information, timely communication, better collaboration, and online tools to support the mission of the Snoqualmie Valley School District. Aside from a new look, the school websites will now have much more consistency across the district, making them easier to navigate for families. The sites are also better organized and have a number of new features making them more accessible from mobile devices.

The previous SVSD website was last redesigned seven years ago. According to Director of Instructional Technology Jeff Hogan, it lacked many of the features now commonly found in a robust content management system, like support for multimedia and a translation tool.

“The new, more integrated websites will continue to be an important and timely communication tool for our school community. New features should make the sites more easy to access for families and more functional to use for school staff,” said Carolyn Malcolm, the District’s Public Information Coordinator. “By adding a Facebook page and Twitter presence, we look forward to increasing the ways in which we can share the many great things that are happening in our schools.”

The Snoqualmie Valley School District website will keep the same address: www.svsd410.org. Visitors can quickly access the school websites through the “Select a School” feature at the top of the homepage. To follow the District on Facebook, go to www.facebook.com/svsd410. Starting next week, the District will activate its Twitter feed @SnoqValleySD.

As the district’s Technology Department continues to transition content to the new system, we appreciate the community’s patience while some areas are “under construction”.
