COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A new logo, website and an app now represent Collier County schools and you paid for it.
The District School Board of Collier County said it’s time to ditch the formal name and go with what the public has gone with for years.
On Wednesday, they unveiled the new logo, making the name CCPS or Collier County Public Schools more official.
But at what cost?
“We’re at just under $10,000 and that’s where we should stay for that cost,” said Superintendent Dr. Kamela Patton.
That’s because Dr. Patton said they’re trying to be cost conscious with taxpayer money.
So far, they’ve only changed a few signs at the administrative center, other changes will happen over time.
“As a school or anyone in the district uses up their letter head they’ll then replace the new letter head when they order with the new logo so we’re not throwing out anything but using it all up.”
The district also showed off their new website and an app you can download on your cell phone for free.
The app, developed for free, allows parents to check out school calendars, the lunch menu, and get notifications directly from the school district.
“If we ever really need to get them we don’t only need to rely on our district website or a phone message but they can get that instant push right away.”
The district will keep their legal name as the District School Board of Collier County. That’s what they were called for the past 18 years but the district says no one knew them as that.
