Wolf Creek Public Schools has a new look for their central office and school websites.

Last spring a website focus group met several times to examine many of the aspects that would define a stronger website communication tool for both the school division and the local schools. After reviewing several different possibilities and meeting with website vendors, the focus group members unanimously recommended Dreamstalk Studios as the successful vendor to work with Wolf Creek. Dreamstalk Studios was chosen by the focus group for their forward approach to website design, their strong inter-personal skills in responding to needs and their ability to meet the desired outcomes outlined by the focus group.

“The ongoing support and positive working relationship that Dreamstalk staff brings to our working relationship has been evident right from the start. The focus group characterized Dreamstalk’s business approach as being collaborative and consultative to meeting the ongoing digital communication needs of our schools,” said Mark McWhinnie assistant superintendent (technology) for Wolf Creek Public Schools.

The new websites are mobile-friendly and will provide quick information updates, access to new 21st century communication tools and enhanced features that make the websites visually appealing and informative. This will be accomplished with greater ease of use by each of the local school and department webmasters along with ongoing accessible support by Dreamstalk Studios. Wolf Creek Public Schools is one of the first school divisions to launch with ‘Breeze 5’, a new web-based technology that allows immense flexibility and support.

Staff from across Wolf Creek Public Schools were part of several short training events provided by Dreamstalk with more of these events being planned in the future.

The new look begins with the division office website and eight school-based websites. Continuing throughout January, all remaining school sites will be updated with a new look as consultation and revisions take place with each school.
