About the Client 

Box Clever has been thrilled to work with Palliser Regional School Division to move them off the Breeze platform and onto WebGuide for Schools. With the WebGuide for Schools content management system, staff of all technical abilities can easily update their school websites and the division site, and can publish division documents such as policies and procedures to all of those sites using the StaffConnect intranet system. 

Palliser also launched our Bus Status app, which allows division Transportation staff to push notifications about delayed or cancelled school buses from WebGuide for Schools to the app on parents' phones as well as the division and school websites.

Palliser Regional Schools is now equipped with beautiful, functional websites and an integrated system that makes publishing content to the web simple and easy.

The Best in Class award is the highest honour bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards. It represents the very best in planning, execution and overall professionalism. In order to win this award level, our sites had to successfully pass through a comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each of the judging criteria - an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year

When it comes to school website design, straight-forward navigation is key. Schools need to communicate with parents and students as efficiently as possible. At Box Clever Education, we created a custom content management system (CMS) called WebGuide for Schools that creates consistency across all websites in the district. Each school is on the same CMS, each website has the same features and tools, and they are all branded as part of Palliser Regional Schools. This consistent layout and feel ensures that all visitors are able to get the information they need quickly and easily.

Admin time is significantly reduced thanks to our simple-to-use system and effective setup and training. A half-day training session for staff is typically all the time schools need to create websites that are fully-populated and ready to launch! The system is so easy to understand that the designated staff members trained by our team at Box Clever are able to return to their schools and provide training to the rest of the school's staff. WebGuide for Schools also allows staff members to have access to multiple school sites, along with access at the district level.

Each school can choose from a selection of modern website themes designed by our team of professional web designers, and can further customize their site by choosing their colours, layout, and more. If a school is looking for a fresh, new look it’s as easy as logging into WebGuide and selecting a new website theme - all content is automatically switched over to the new theme without any additional work.  A website refresh has never been so easy!
