About the Client

In 2018, Northern Lights Public Schools (NLPS) selected Box Clever to custom-build a new district website and launch new sites for twenty-one schools across NLPS.

After using The Breeze for Teachers platform for several years, NLPS chose to switch to our WebGuide for Schools content management system to simplify day-to-day website management and give school webmasters total control over pages, content and images on their websites. 

 

Bus Status App

NLPS implemented our Bus Status system and app for iOS and Android. With Bus Status, NLPS' transportation department only needs to update the status of a delayed or cancelled school bus once, and the update is automatically pushed out to the app on parents phones, the district website, school websites and social media. Best of all, the district does not need to maintain parent contact lists or invest in an expensive bus GPS system in order to keep parents notified. The updates entered in WebGuide for Schools go instantly to app users' phones with a push notification.  

 

HR System with Applicant Tracking

NLPS' district website includes a built-in Human Resources system that allows the district to quickly post jobs, accept applications, sort applicants and remove job postings once they are filled. Employees and applicants are able to create their own accounts and update their information as it changes. 

 

School Websites

NLPS' twenty-one schools use a selection of our expertly crafted school website design themes, each available with a wide variety of colour and layout options.

NLPS' district and school websites are all powered by WebGuide for Schools, our Content Management System built especially for K-12 school districts and their schools. With WebGuide for Schools, features are always simple, consistent and built to do exactly what schools need them to do. Even users with very limited technical ability can post and manage website content quickly and easily.
