Making everyone more productive, a premier and education feature is now available for all users of Google Apps - the utilization of Sites templates.  Sites templates have two flavors - domain and public.  Domain Sites templates allows a Sites creator to consider a site a template within the domain - meaning that if a site is created that has the company standards - such as logo placement, graphics, look, and feel - that site can be considered a template and used as the foundation for other sites within the domain; thus saving quite a bit of time and effort.

Additionally, a new site can incorporate a template from the public domain.  The public domain has all sorts of templates with a wide range of features under the headings of business collaboration, activities & events, schools & education, clubs & organizations, personal & family, and government & non-profits.  Thereby giving a specific choice such as project wiki, project work site, team work, contractor site template, document library & sharing, church site template, high school template, classroom site, soccer team, outdoor club template, family site, wedding site, charity site, city council site, and public health template.  The amount of templates are numerous and growing!
