The Long Beach Unified School District’s official website, lbschools.net, now attracts more than a million pageviews each month.
About 12,000 people visit the website daily, up 4,000 since the site was redesigned two years ago. The site attracts 15 times the number of daily visitors it did six years ago.
Visitors to the site include cyber-surfers from all 50 states as well as 181 countries and territories.
The website last year won the Award of Excellence, the highest national honor for school district websites. The national contest attracted 107 entries in the website category. Only four sites received the top honor.
LBUSD’s website is part of the school district’s Strategic Plan, which includes efforts to improve communication districtwide.
