Example School Websites
Kirkville Web Design has designed many websites for schools in the United States. We love supporting teachers and even provide free templates for teacher sites, classrooms and student profiles.
The Current Situation
We all have seen websites fall into disrepair in the sphere of education. Many websites for schools, districts and area service districts have been built upon platforms which are difficult to maintain for the average in-house IT team; perhaps it was Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal or otherwise. Thousands of educational organizations have adopted Google Workspace for Education and so there is good news by way of Google Sites.

Netdemics CEO, John Meixner
As a Google Apps school district, we chose a website solution built exclusively in Sites. Why not, since we teach Sites to students for their portfolios and to teachers for their course webpages? We live and work in the Google Apps ecosystem; shouldn't our website reflect that dynamic space? It’s also worth noting Sites' page permissions feature, which allows for shared responsibility of updating content. Our campuses are dynamic places, with stories to tell about academics, sports, clubs, cultural events, even campus emergencies. Using Sites, with its integration with Docs, Calendar, Forms & Maps, is a logical, flexible website solution for schools and simply made smart sense for Placer Union.
