Our website has gone mobile!
December 12, 2012
The Beal City Public Schools web site is now adaptable for viewing on all mobile devices. The good news is you have a choice on your viewing preference.
The next time you view our website on a tablet or smartphone, our web site will automatically detect your mobile device, display the mobile view and will remember it each time you return. If you change your mind, look for the “Full Site/Mobile” button on the footer of the web site to toggle back and forth.
In addition to view choices, our new mobile view offers additional features like:
A responsive design that adjusts to any display size
- Dynamic imagery with color and photos
- Collapsible navigation
- Language translation
- Search function
- Scrolling banners
- Quick Links
In August 2012, Pew Internet Research reported 45 percent of American adult cell phone owners have a smartphone. In addition, 25 percent of American adults own a tablet computer. Those numbers are expected to increase. Anticipating this, our website provider, SOCS, helped us get ready for the trend by providing a mobile view of our web site.
SOCS, a leading web-hosting company, furnishes websites for school districts, hospitals, municipalities and other community non-profits. This service is provided by the Foundation for Educational Services, in Lincoln Nebraska.
