NEWS RELEASE -- New Logo, Website Greet New School Year

NEWS RELEASE From the San Diego Unified School District, August 25, 2009


Design hails every student as star

SAN DIEGO ­ The San Diego Unified School District will celebrate the start
of the school year on Sept. 8 with a new look and logo.

The district Communications Department has been working over the summer with
the local graphic design firm Greenhaus (http://greenhaus.com/), which
donated its services, to design a modern, updated logo. With the endorsement
of the Board of Education, the new logo was unveiled this morning at the
annual Administrators Back-to-School Meeting.

The new logo highlights the district¹s theme: ³San Diego Unified School
District &lsqauo; Where Every Student is a Star.²

The new look will also transform the new district website that will be
launched on September 8 at the first Board of Education meeting of the new
school year. The new website will bring the latest web technology to the
district; expanding online communications with school communities, employees
and the general public.

Designed by Schoolwires (http://www.schoolwires.com), the website will allow
departments and school sites to manage their own web presence with a full
content management system. The Communications and Information Technology
departments will be working during the coming months to phase in the new
website and provide training for staff to manage their own web content.

For more information, please contact Chief District Relations Office Bernie
Rhinerson at (619) 725-5578 or brhinerson@sandi.net .
