This is the final installment of the monthly West Burlington Independent School District newsletter for the 2014-2015 school year. We are in the final phases of a most successful school year. It is safe to say that Falcon Pride abounds. West Burlington ISD strives to provide a balanced education and a host of educational experiences for ALL of our students. I believe we are achieving that.
The Department of Education recently concluded our site visit. The written report will be available in two months but the initial/preliminary report was borderline stellar. The consultants who spent three days reviewing our documentation, interviewing stakeholders, and walking through our buildings were very impressed with all of the good things going on in our district. The team was especially impressed with our professional development program, our literacy instruction, and the efforts WBISD makes to assist all students in achieving at high levels. The site team found our school district’s learning environment to be very positive and our students to be respectful and pleasant. The site team pointed out that our stakeholders have all rallied behind our district vision and mission. I must admit I was pleased to hear this account of our school district, but certainly not surprised. Falcon Pride abounds!
The school district does not discriminate in its education programs or educational activities on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, national origin, age, marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status (for programs), creed or disability. Students are educated in programs which foster knowledge of, and respect and appreciation for, the historical and contemporary contributions of diverse cultural groups including those of race, color, national origin, gender, disability, religion, creed, and socio-economic background, as well as men and women, to society. The programs include contributions and perspectives of Asian Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, and European Americans. Students who feel they have been discriminated against are encouraged to report it to the school district Affirmative Action Coordinator.
