Credits, Privacy Policy, and Disclaimer Statement

This website is the collective effort of many individuals working on behalf of the Mansfield Public School District. We use a content management software to allow the users closest to and most knowledgable about the information to directly update that information. This makes for a more accurate and active website that benefits our students, parents, community, and staff.

Our sincere thanks and appreciation to Professor June Bisantz and her Digital Art and Design students at Eastern Connecticut State University. Professor Bisantz and her students volunteered their time to complete professional quality logo design work for our consideration. Of particular mention, the logo design for Goodwin Elementary School, which is featured prominently on this website was created by one of Professor Bisantz's students.

Thank you as well to QScend Technologies, the provider of the website content management software used by this site, as well as the professional design support for the website's school templates.
