New Websites for EICS

Box Clever worked with Elk Island Catholic Schools to give their corporate and 16 school websites responsive, modern designs on an easy-to-use content management system.

The previous websites were run on Joomla! - a CMS that is quite difficult to use. This led to staff frustration and many of the school sites containing outdated content. It also made training and support very difficult. Hosting the websites internally meant IT staff had to maintain and provide technical support and fixes for the websites each year.

The new websites, all powered by our WebGuide for Schools CMS, are designed to be as easy to use as possible, minimizing the time needed to train staff on the system. Since WebGuide for Schools is a multi-site and multi-district content management system, EICS can be assured that they will always be on the newest and most secure version of WebGuide with no support needed from their IT staff.

The new Elk Island Catholic Schools corporate and school websites were designed to reflect the progressive values of the division while maintaining their strong ties to faith. As many of EICS’s schools are also used as community hubs, we utilized the rich colours within their brand to reflect each school’s strong ties to faith and community.
