District website receives national Award of Excellence
Edina Public Schools’ district website has been recognized with an Award of Excellence in the Publications and Digital Media category by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA).
The new website launched on Oct. 20, 2021, and includes 12 subdomains, one for each school and several programs, as well as an employee intranet. The district Communications Department worked with a new content management vendor, Finalsite, to develop site and page design, content migration and training of website editors. The new website offers a more visual user experience, improved navigation and serves as the information hub for current and prospective families.
Members of the communications team are: Josh Fremder and Molly Heimel, communications specialists; Jordan Johnson, former communications specialist; and Mary Woitte, director.
Entries for the 2022 NSPRA Awards were judged within an entry category only against those from organizations of a similar type and size. Each entry was judged on the overall excellence of the entry as well as its quality compared to other entries in the category. The top award in each category is the Award of Excellence.
