Went to look for something on the Dallas Independent School District's website ... only to discover that the DISD has a new website. Trustees got a sneak peek Thursday; it went live moments ago, turns out. It's certainly a nicer shade of blue than its predecessor. And, I see the schools' individual pages are now maintained on the district's site, and it's easier to find, say, TAKS scores than it used to be.
But with less than a week before school, there are some crucial missing pieces: If, oh, you're new to the district and not sure where your kid's supposed to go Monday, don't try the Find Your School page. "Page Not Found." And where's the check register? Give it a whirl; see what else you can't find.
Update at 10:16 a.m.: The old website's back up in place of the new one.
