Web Design

The Lambton Kent District School Board's (LKDSB) website is an important communications tool for engaging with students, staff, parents/guardians and the community, as well as providing important and relevant information about the LKDSB.

In March 2017, the LKDSB implemented a new website redesign, which features responsive design that is mobile-friendly. The website also meets WCAG 2.0 Level A, as required by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) for new school board websites created after 2013. Google Translate is used as a language translator. 

Other key areas of the redesigned website: 
  • Newsletter management tool allows visitors to subscribe to newsletters or other electronic mailings;
  • Calendar subscription option allows visitors to subscribe to calendars with their mobile devices or into other calendar programs; and
  • Social media integration allows feeds to be displayed on websites.
