Hello West Burlington Independent School District stakeholders. This is the first installment for the 2015-2016 school year newsletter. I am sure our students will enjoy the extra two weeks of summer vacation precipitated by a later school start date. It will give our students and families more opportunity to vacation, swim, enjoy the sun, and eat an extra corn dog.
This newsletter edition has a wide array of information for new students and for those returning to West Burlington. Please read carefully noting when and where registration is being held, the times for open house, and of course, the first day of school. WBISD is in position to have another stellar school year.
I am honored to report our student achievement scores are looking good. Our elementary and high school Iowa Assessment scores rank first when compared with all of the schools in the Great Prairie AEA. Yes, I said first. Our junior high school achievement scores, our point of emphasis for improvement this school year, ranks in the top five in math, reading and science. We all should be very proud of how well our students are achieving. Thanks for your support of our academic programs. All of us working together is making a huge positive impact in our students’ educational development.
