This is the first installment in the McKinney Boyd HS Website Redesign blog post series.

The above tweet contains our latest consensus on a theme for the website. The first picture shows the old website.
Before this, a group of students talked with Dr. Peirson, principal of McKinney Boyd High School, and the webmaster of the website, Dr. Ayers. They are:
- Jeffrey Wang – @jeffwang16 – Team leader, Developer
- CJ Duffee – @CJ_Duffee – Developer
- Trevor “Thai” Nguyen – @trevortknguyen – Advisory member
- Sammy Shin – @samshin102 – Advisory member
We discussed some pitfalls of the previous website, including:
- Out-of-date design
- Confusing layout
- Not mobile-friendly
Now, we would like to resolve these issues, creating a website that is more up-to-date and accessible than it currently is.
The web development team began with a temporary Twitter Bootstrap-oriented theme. In the middle of January, we added:
Just today, Justin unveiled a new preliminary design that will likely replace our Bootstrap design. However, we’d like to unveil a design that is universally appealing to everybody.
If you think you have a better idea for the design of the school website, please send us an image of a design you’d like for the school website to email@example.com. Be sure to include both a desktop and mobile design.
You can always track the latest version of the website at https://jeffw16.github.io/Boyd-Website-Redesign/.
Thanks for coming on an exciting adventure! We hope to have a finished website by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more exciting news on the new Boyd website. #mckboyd #newboydsite
