The site and its processes

Strathcona High School’s previous site didn’t meet their needs. They dreamed of making their site an effective recruitment tool for prospective students, while also remaining informative to current students, faculty and parents. 

Enter Bright Umbrella: we developed a custom EE implementation that allows admins with very little technical knowledge to update the site themselves. The CMS also features a customized control panel, and provides a single interface to manage multiple site properties—their main site, their library site and their student recruitment site.

The original project was scoped for an exclusively desktop experience, but we recently retrofit the site for a responsive design that parents and teens are able to experience on their phones and mobile devices.

Add-ons and EE special sauce

To customize the CP to increase admin workflow efficiency, the following were integral:

  • Low Variables
  • Zoo Flexible Admin
  • Zenbu
  • Low Reorder
  • Updater
