New Logo, Website Greet New School Year

Design hails every student as star

The San Diego Unified School District will celebrate the start
of the school year on Sept. 8 with a new look and logo.

The district Communications Department has been working over the summer with the local graphic design firm Greenhaus, which donated its services, to design a modern, updated logo. With the endorsement of the Board of Education, the new logo was unveiled Tuesday, August 25, at the annual Administrators Back-to-School Meeting.

The new logo highlights the district’s theme: “San Diego Unified School District — Where Every Student is a Star.”

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

Designed by Schoolwires, the website will allow departments and school sites to manage their own web presence with a full content management system. The Communications and Information Technology departments will be working during the coming months to phase in the new website and provide training for staff to manage their own web content.
