More and more people are accessing the web through devices other than a desktop computer, which has increased the importance of responsive web design. Think about if you were a student, where are you going to go to see what’s for lunch, when an assignment is due, or what time the football game starts? Now you’re a parent.

Five Technology’s website for the Delano School District provides an easy, effective communication link between their parents, students, teachers, and administration. Your district can benefit from this same convenient communication link customized to your specific needs.
Easy to Navigate
Any information users need is easily found in one of the site’s clear categories.
  • Main Categories: From any page on the site, users can access the main categories of District, High School, Middle School, Elementary School, Activities, and Community Education instead of using the back button or needing to return to the home page and start over. For example, a parent can choose the main category High School to get to a specific teacher page and then go directly from the teacher’s page to information about a recent school board meeting under the main category District.
