THE CHESANING BRAND – Chesaning Union Schools IT Coordinator Brett Russell is in the design phase of creating a “landing page” to promote Chesaning. During the May 8 school board meeting, he demonstrated how organizations and events would each have a photo tile that links viewers to organization and event websites. Russell showed how a visitor who is coming into town for a particular event, such as the Saginaw County Fair, could use it to easily locate local hotel accommodations, restaurants and other businesses. The site he is creating will have a mobile friendly app as well. He also demonstrated the existing www.mychesaningcalendar.com. Superintendent Mike McGough described it as a one-stop for the whole community. Meanwhile, the Chesaning Union Schools website is down while a new ADA-compliant website is being created.
