Here's the gist

Migrate former Dept of Education civil rights content for students and parents to a new website

Problem

At the end of each presidential term, content from .gov websites is lost. The End Of Term Archive project crawls government websites to maintain an archive, but the resulting content is not indexed by Google and isn't easily accessible to those who need it.

Goal

Take website content collected from crawling ed.gov pre-inauguration 2017 and build a new website called schoolguidance.org. The goal is to create an easily accessible resource for parents and students to find out about issues like race and national origin discrimination, sex discrimination, information about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, guidance documents about disability discrimination and much more.

Skills

This will be a static website, so basic web development skills are required. Team will also need to set up the website at schoolguidance.org once developed.
