  • Pierz Schools Updated Website

    Posted by Heidi Thielen on 5/18/2022

    Pierz Schools has recently updated it's website to not only improve the experience for site users, but to stay ADA compliant on its platform. Working with the web content management company Blackboard, the new site will also allow all web pages to be easily translated. The enhanced site provides easy access to district communications, staff and student resources, as well as easy access to activities, online payments, and timely information. 

    Like anything new, it may take time to navigate the new format. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update the new site and close out the old one. Please note: the old site will no longer be updated as of June 1 and will officially sunset on June 30. At that time, the new site will roll over to www.pierzschools.org, so all bookmarks should automatically forward to the new site.
