Empowering Education: Crafting the California School Board Association's Legal Services Website with Optimizely

Founded in 1953, the California School Boards Association (CSBA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting school boards and education leaders across the state. Offering legal assistance and guidance, CSBA helps member districts address education governance, labor matters, and compliance with state and federal laws.

CSBA partnered with BlueBolt to develop a new website for their Legal Services, offered to members via subscription. This online platform grants subscribers access to legal resources such as briefs, forms, templates, and statewide data, enhancing CSBA's existing services. The website's aim is to provide subscribers with 24/7 online access to essential materials, facilitating efficient support for their legal needs and objectives.

Defining User Experience Strategy

While BlueBolt's Optimizely development team completed a successful implementation, CSBA's project highlights were driven by BlueBolt's Creative Design team. For the new CSBA Legal Services website, BlueBolt crafted a dynamic landing page catering to both logged-in and logged-out users. This page acts as a marketing tool, enticing users with the services offered, and provides a search engine with essential CTAs for user convenience. Our team employed custom graphics, textures, and a consistent branded color palette, coupled with ample whitespace to enhance user focus. Through meticulous wireframing, we ensured seamless search and filtering experiences for all users. The search results page was optimized for easy document access with downloadable icons, clear visual delineations, and informative tooltips. This comprehensive approach, including hover states and result counts on facets, empowers users to navigate the platform effortlessly.


The California School Boards Association was thrilled with the redesign of their Legal Services website. Members praised its user-friendly interface, stating they easily located the necessary documents and information. With a longstanding partnership, CSBA has entrusted BlueBolt with their digital initiatives. Looking ahead, the California School Boards Association is gearing up for an Optimizely upgrade of their flagship website.
