In our experience of developing powerful and effective sites for schools over the past sixteen years, we've created a method that make the creative and information gathering process as easy as can be.
On average, a well planned school site should take no more than 45-60 business days to develop and populate with information. This assumes that the school can dedicate an individual to part-time coordination of information gathering and editing of content. Redstick also offers content gathering and coordination as a service.

During the initial meeting with client, Redstick delivers a proven, information gathering guide for assisting in the delegation, encouragement, and collection of information from the various sources that school will have to tap in the data gathering process.
Weekly progress reports are developed by Redstick so that tasks stay on track and responsible parties are accountable to a master development plan. From our experience, well planned initiatives stay on track and under budget.
