Traditionally, the website was the responsibility of the current president, and this website changed hardware and software platforms every three years. The new president-elect promised to establish a permanent home for the organization's website using a content management system. And he had it launched prior to his taking office. The website provides a resource for information about their triennial conference, leadership, membership, official activities. Galleries of documents, videos, and photos are also incorporated into the website.

NCSSFL is an organization of education agency personnel from all states of the United States who have the responsibility of foreign language education at the state level. The organization itself is relatively small, with one representative from each state, retired members, and representatives from foreign language associations. Since members are scattered across the country, the website is used to collect data on foreign language study in each state, and to present mandated reports for the public. Links to every state's foreign language education requirements are included as a resource, along with scholarly publications, and information on the organization's annual conference.

The member section is password-protected, has information about related news stories, changes in legislature that effects the industry, meeting information, and convention registration and payment. The design intent was to be professional and non-sectarian. The photographs of nature scenes provide the website with a respectful and inviting presence.
