The Legacy Charter School is part of a new charter school program introduced by the Chicago Public Schools. The idea behind of this program is to encourage private investment of education with the aim of increasing the coverage of education within the city while raising the overall level of education available to children in certain blighted areas of the city.
We were invited to design and develop in this website by the school’s primary sponsor, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP. Given our philosophy of building sustainable websites that can be maintained by non-technical people, we selected and integrated an open-source content management system into their shared-hosting account. While this project was performed pro-bono, website functionality was not compromised. The site was built in such a way that the site can grow as quickly as their content needs grow.
