Materiell Awarded Contract for Arlington Co. Public Schools Website Redesign & Development


As a web design and development firm with strong roots in Arlington, Virginia and the surrounding Washington, D.C. metro area, Materiell prides itself on the websites we create for local companies and organizations, including educational institutions. This is why we are pleased to announce that the Arlington Public School District (APS) has chosen Materiell to update, redesign, and host its multiple school web properties using the WordPress content management system.
A vibrant and thriving school district located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., APS is the thirteenth largest among Virginia’s 132 school divisions. Arlington County (whose government website theme development Materiell performed back in 2013) is a family-friendly community with a public school system renowned for providing superb educational instruction to a diverse demographic of kindergarten through twelfth grade school-age children. APS’ WordPress multisite will include over 40 high school, middle, and elementary school websites, as well as individual sites for several special centers and programs. Project launch is projected for July 2016.
Materiell is thrilled to work with school systems like APS to simplify the organization and administration of a website end-product. With its user-friendly multi-site capabilities, WordPress is the content management system that Materiell will use to develop a comprehensive solution to Arlington Public Schools’ web design, development, and hosting needs. We look forward to working with APS and addressing several organizational issues unique to a collection of websites for a school district of its size. This includes different levels of administrative and moderator access to each site’s back-end, resolving unnecessary or duplicative content, and ensuring each individual website under the auspices of the APS label is organized in a logical, easy to navigate manner. Materiell will also provide on-site training to key APS employees to ensure ease of site use on a timeline that is both efficient and realistic to meet the needs posed by an institution of this size and repute.
