New Google Sites
Google Sites has just launched a new platform. We recommend all new sites to be created using the new Google Sites platform. To use the new Google Sites, please follow these steps:

  • Login to your Google account at Google.cpsd.us.
  • Click on the 9-squared icon in the top right corner and click on Sites.
  • Click on Create > In New Sites
  • Now you can begin to drop and drag content areas and build your site.

Once your content is created, please share the site with Lisa Waters adding Lisa as a full owner. We will then review the site to ensure it meets CPS standards and branding and post it to the school website. 

When selecting a theme for the site, please DO NOT select Diplomat or Impression. When you select the theme, it will ask you to choose the font color, please select the blue color.

Just to let you know, when you are using the new Google Sites, you may notice some features missing that existed in the classic sites to include: choices of font styles, colors, or the ability to view in html code. Google states that this is the basic launch and they will be adding new features along the way. We are not sure what these features are at this time.

Existing Classic Google Sites
If you would like to convert your Classic Google Site to the new platform, login to your Google Site and follow these directions:

  1. Click on the Gear Icon in the top right corner
  2. Click on Manage Sites
  3. At the bottom of the menu on the left hand-side, click Convert to New Sites.
  4. Choose the sharing permissions for the new site.
  5. Click Start to begin the transfer.
  6. Once this is complete, hit Continue
  7. Click on Review Draft.
