Enabling a charter school with technology

Oxford Preparatory Academy (OPA) wanted a custom web solution to deliver the vision for their charter school campuses.

Strategy Star worked with OPA’s in-house technology manager to implement a custom website solution that served several functions, including the following:

  • Landing page for the charter school organization
  • Customizable web portals for each school campus
  • Secure back-end portal for staff and teachers to manage web content in real-time
  • Secure online enrollment application form for parents
  • Accounts for parents to log-in with to view and receive important information

We developed the website solution on the LAMP stack using the following technologies:

  • Linux
  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP
  • Kohana Framework
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Bootstrap
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery

The campus portals were integrated with a few different third-party tools that the organization used to communicate with students and parents, including:

  • Google Calendar
  • Twitter
  • SendGrid

It was a wonderful experience to implement a time-saving web portal system for a unique education organization.
