Los Angeles Unified School District website Makeover LAUSDThe LA Unified School District got a makeover.

Well, not the district. Its website.

Samuel C. Gilstrap, a district spokesman, said the idea was to move all the various administrative office sites from a dated, non-integrated collection of platforms onto a one-stop-shopping site that is easier to access and navigate.

Two key reasons for the upgrade, he said: One, upgrades will improve the quality of the user experience by offering clear and consistent pathways to information and online tools. Two, it will help reduce costs by eliminating duplicate fees such as licensing, maintenance and hosting of the site.

And it hasn’t been a budget-buster, costing less than $70,000.
