The website for West Jefferson Hills School District will get a new look this summer.

The board this week selected eSchoolView as its website content-management firm. District spokesman Tony Sonita anticipates a July 1 launch.

“It gives us a fresh, new look,” Sonita said.

The Columbus, Ohio, company was one of three considered to update the district's website. The one-time setup fee is $4,500. The monthly fee is $395 through June 30, 2015. From that time until June 30, 2018, the annual cost will be about $3,318.

The other companies considered were SchoolWires and Blackboard. eSchool View also designed the website for the Bethel Park and Shaler Area school districts.

During the review process completed by Suhail Baloch, technology director, and Sonita, eSchoolView created four additional designs for the board to choose from. Both men presented their findings at meetings this month.

School board President Tony Angotti also asked that the public be involved in commenting on the designs via an online survey.

The district, Sonita said, was looking for a website with “a more professional look and a use of space in a proper way.”

The existing website was thought to be too cluttered and in need of updates.

eSchoolView would provide technical support 24 hours per day, seven days per week and allow district personnel to update the website. Teachers also would be able to create their own sites linked to the main page.
