According to a recent survey of over 500 schools, a user-friendly interface for parents, students, faculty, and staff rated as the most important factor in determining which software they use. Your school’s portals are an important way to not only communicate information and complete important tasks, but also to build community.

In August 2021 we launched the inaugural “Great Portals Build Off“as a way to highlight exceptionally designed portals, help schools share ideas and best practices, and hopefully inspire some creativity.

We are thrilled to announce this year’s winners! With so many wonderful and creative entries, it was hard to narrow it down to just these five so we included honorable mentions for each category as well!

So without further ado, please join me in congratulating…
