Together with the customer we agreed that the best solution would be to create a website based on the Drupal CMS. We thus gained a mechanism of advanced user permissions out of the box, as well as an initial version of the website that could be prepared quickly. This allowed the customer to move content from the old website to the new one (which was bound to take some time, as it had to be done manually) with plenty of help from the school’s students.
Thanks to this staged release, all of the data was put in place even before we’d finished creating the graphics design for the new site. As a result, the new version of the website was finished and ready to launch before the start of the new school year.
