Richard Wright Public Charter Schools have a mission to transform lives in an engaging, student-centered environment with a caring, highly qualified staff to develop students for college and beyond. With its unique focus on journalism, media, creative and performing arts, RWPCS offers a myriad of opportunities, both on and off campus, for all students to thrive and achieve.
Richard Wright PCS outgrew its previous building and upgraded their school facilities, moving into a brand-new, purpose-built property, next to the National Mall. Their website was originally built with WordPress and had become slow to load and difficult to maintain. As with all schools and non-profits, it was extremely important that their new website was accessible, conforming to ADA and WCAG website accessibility standards.
Our goal before starting any code development is to complete a thorough inventory of the existing website content. By reorganizing the original content, we can start to rebuild a clean, easy to navigate website ready for any future copy and additional functionality. Working closely with Michelle Santos, Richard Wright PSC's Chief Creative Officer, we developed a plan to seamlessly upgrade their site to one that would serve them well for years to come.
