Website Content Guidelines & Standards

In order for Minneapolis Public Schools to maintain a consistent and professional-looking website, it is critical that web editors follow website content and visual guidelines. The following information provides MPS web editors with recommendations on how to make their web content more reader friendly and visually appealing.

We no longer live in a world where parents look up their local community school in the phone book and stop by for a tour. Many families decide whether to enroll their child in a school based on the website alone. A school’s website is a window into the academics, program offerings, facilities and culture of your school, so it is important to put your best foot forward.

Before you add content to your website, spend some time learning about best practices for web content, and the guidelines Minneapolis Public Schools has established for its web editors.
