Goals & Objectives

Provide users a simple site for consuming information they need.

  • Maintain a consistent look across all pages
  • Content relevance defined
    • Limit content to 3 years
    • Remove or replace content when changes occur
  • Spell out acronyms and define specific content within a data collection / application. With high staff turnover at the district level, we want the site to give a user a basic understanding of the content available. A new user should be able to understand the content without prior knowledge/training. 

Goals & Objectives

Content standards and Lifecycle

  • Content older than 3 years will be removed
  • File formats are located on the file format page ONLY
  • Set & maintain standards and best practices that are easily replicated
  • Develop accessible templates for User documentation. That way there is consistency with our instructions across data collections and applications. Will also give us the chance to refresh/archive outdated manuals.
