Peoria District 150 apparently wants to "rock and roll all night and party every day".


I don't consider myself a prude. But really, District 150? Is this photo truly the kind of representation you want of an already struggling school district?

Yes, it's cute, and funny - maybe hanging on someone's bulletin board at work, or perhaps sent through inter-office email. But on the WEBSITE?

I have nothing more to say about this. Really. I'm just speechless.

  1. It makes me want to pierce my.... study English.

  2. There are other things that are fundamentally wrong with the site. The Flash program is too large and a lot of home computers and smart phones will have trouble downloading it. And the white on red reverse print is too hard to read. When people go to their District website they are usually looking for facts, not bells and whistles. The old site was far better! I'm not as uncomfortable with the Kiss photo as you are but would prefer it not be there. School should be a safe haven from twisted pop culture.

  3. I don't think the site is red enough.

  4. In all seriousness, the site needs some serious help. Obviously, there is a lot of actual content missing on the schools' pages. On one school's page, there was an animated gif. Really? Who still uses those? And the color scheme--as if all red IS a scheme--is awful. The KISS photo, though, is the icing on the cake. But really, Amy. Does any of this really surprise you?

  5. They should have the kids in digital/graphic arts classes design their website, it probably would be better.

  6. The color scheme just represents their current fiscal state.
