You may have noticed some changes to Philly School Search over the last few weeks, the most dramatic is our new look and feel. Why the changes? We’ve been working hard to try to make the site more user friendly. Here are some changes to help with that:
- Search is now enabled for the site along the page header
- You can now sign up for notifications when new articles have been published on Philly School Search. Simply enter your email address in the subscribe box on the sidebar and click subscribe to get started.
- There is now a table of contents menu that lists topics and pages that most frequently read on this blog. You can browse articles by school type and neighborhood/region.
As an aside, you’ll notice that some neighborhoods (NE Philly, Northern Liberties, NJ, Montgomery/Bucks/Chester/Delaware County, more) are not represented, and some others (South Philly, Fairmount) are thinner in content than others. We’re still actively looking for blog contributors from all neighborhoods who want to help their fellow parents by sharing their experiences. Also, we have been focused on kindergarten and elementary schools, but we would love to start including content about middle schools and high schools as well. Anything from one article to a weekly series would be welcomed. If you are interested in becoming a contributing author for one article or many, contact us.
Look for more changes in the coming weeks as we tweak the design!
