New District Logo & Website on the Way

We are excited to announce that with the start of the new school year, San Diego Unified will celebrate a new look and a brand new website.

Our Communications Department has been working over the summer with a local graphic design firm, Greenhaus, which donated its services to design a modern, updated logo for our district. Chief District Relations Officer Bernie Rhinerson will unveil the new logo at the Administrators Back-to-School Meeting on Tuesday morning.

Our new look will also transform the new district website that will be launched on September 8th at the first Board of Education meeting of the new school year. The new website will bring the latest web technology to our district; helping us improve our online communications with our school communities, our employees and the general public.

The new website, designed by Schoolwires, will allow all departments and school sites to manage their own web presence with a full content management system. The district has been working with Schoolwires to develop flexible templates for elementary, middle and high schools. Schools will be able to design their own sites with exciting new features including integrated calendars, news updates, photos, videos and more.

The Communications Department will be working with our schools and departments during the coming months to phase in the new website options for schools and to provide training for our staff to manage their own web content.

So, starting next week, get ready for an exciting new look for our district! For more information, please contact Bernie Rhinerson at (619) 725-5578 or
