CMS OVERVIEW

Catapult CMS is a content management system that empowers anyone, from teachers to technology directors, to control, update and maintain website content including text, images, links, video, and documents. It requires only word processing skills to operate, and it quickly and efficiently integrates any changes you make to the content within the site. And with three levels of rollbacks for error recovery, even the most hesitant of users should have no fear using this product.

Why Catapult CMS?

AWARD-WINNING DESIGNS
Catapult K12 designs feature a unified graphic theme, with variations that distinguish the site while creating and maintaining a consistent overall look for the District and its schools. The design is professional, uncluttered and viewer-friendly, with graphics that load quickly and intuitive navigation that is easy to use.
SIMPLE & INTUITIVE CMS
Our easy-to-use CMS (Content Management System) empowers multiple stakeholders to update your website instantly. Non-technical personnel can enter and update content, using the word processing skills they already possess, with no need to learn HTML, programming, or other complicated tasks.
ADA COMPLIANCE
Our ADA-compliant process starts with our HTML ADA-compliant templates. Then we review and make changes to your content to ensure it meets 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act standards for accessibility. Lastly, we have updated our CMS to force website maintainers to maintain ADA compliance.

Website Services

ADA COMPLIANCE MONTHLY SERVICE

Catapult is now offering an ADA Remediation Service to assist our clients and protect against litigation. Catapult will work with you to define a personalized monthly plan that suits your district. School districts must conduct audits based on the WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards. As your content is constantly changing, it is possible to unknowingly introduce new errors into your content in a variety of ways. For example, headings must be used correctly to avoid errors, links must have unique and descriptive names, tables must meet strict guidelines, documents must meet ADA guidelines, empty links and headers must be repaired or removed and videos must be captioned properly. Catapult's monthly remediation service can help you assess your accessibility and maintain ADA compliance.

COPYWRITING / CONTENT DEVELOPMENT

Developing page structure and text for your website is overwhelming and extremely time consuming. Instead of bogging down your already overworked staff, let us do this challenging task for you. Our professional staff has years of experience developing well organized websites for the K12 market. They will first evaluate your existing website. Then you will meet with the copywriter to define your specific content needs. Average projects range from 10 to 30 hours. Out of all of the services we offer, this is by far the most effective at finishing your project faster, and the end result is a more comprehensive website.

DATA MIGRATION
