Carroll ISD Launches New District Website

Carroll ISD is launching a new district website for the start of the 2016-2017 school year.

The new site will offer parents, students and staff a more user-friendly experience on their personal computer and mobile devices. It’s the first redesign of the Carroll Dragon site (www.southlakecarroll.edu) in the past five years.

The district’s improved website launches Friday morning and includes a new design with larger feature photos, a cleaner type face and easier ways to find important information using icons and direct links.

* Reminder: Users should clear bookmarks, web browser history to the previous website and link to www.southlakecarroll.edu

All Carroll schools will make the transition to new sites during the fall semester, and will be ready for the launch of redesigned campus websites in January following the winter break.

Parents, students and staff can find their respective school on the district’s site by going on the home page and clicking on the green button at the top right side of the page that reads “CHOOSE YOUR SCHOOL.” From there, it will open a page with the links to the 11 campuses.

“Please be patient with us during this transition as we aim to provide a new and improved website for our parents, students and staff,” said Rick Herrin, CISD’s Assistant Director for Communications. “Many of the heavily-trafficked pages will be part of the home photo slider in the middle of the district’s landing page. This will provide easy-to-find important information for the start of the 2016-2017 school year. The district will continue to move information, documents and pages over from the previous website”.

The new website will also provide a much-improved experience for mobile users.

“The new website is responsive to all devices and offers improved navigation,” Herrin added.
