Has anyone visited Dallas ISD’s website lately? It was completely redesigned, and looks pretty snazzy. The website is much more user-friendly and clutter-free, and its information is more accessible than the former version — you can look up and download lunch menus from the home page, and finding information about applying to magnet schools won’t make you want to rip your hair out.

According DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander, the new website also will allow each school to build its own pages, complete with photos, announcements, calendars, etc., which the previous site would not allow. Check out the pages for Preston Hollow Elementary, W.T. White High School and Hillcrest High School.

“We will be training an individual from each campus so that they can add all of their own information, including photos and emails of teachers and staff,” Dahlander says. “It is flexible enough for each campus to add what they want.”
