News and Announcements

District Announces Fall Break Schedule, October 12-16, 2017

This year, West ISD has planned a Fall Break for all students. This break coincides with the ending of the first nine-week grading period. The four-day weekend gives a chance for our students to stop, rest, catch their breath, and enjoy some time off before the second nine-week grading period begins.

This Thursday, October 12, is an Early Release Day. The afternoon time will be used by teachers to conference with parents. All elementary students will be dismissed at 11:45 AM, and all secondary students will leave at 12:00 PM. Friday, October 13, and Monday, October 16, are both student holidays. Enjoy the time off! For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.

District Announces Fundraising Efforts to Aide Displaced Hurricane Harvey Families

Hurricane Harvey

Over the next few weeks, West ISD will continue to raise funds for families at Latham Springs and across the West community who have been displaced by the storms and rising water of Hurricane Harvey. Please consider giving via our donation buckets at all West ISD Athletic Events and the special dress days at our campuses. Trojans love to give back and serve, so let's make a difference in the lives of our new families to West. Additionally, the West High School FFA and Student Council are also collecting donations. For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.

District Announces Plans to Help "Bully Proof" West ISD

With the recent passage of Senate Bill 179 or David's Law, West ISD worked to adopt certain practices and procedures to prevent and respond to bullying and cyberbullying, expand district jurisdiction for off-campus cyberbullying, and establish with the assistance of West PD civil and criminal consequences for certain types of bullying.

Over the summer, West ISD prepared a plan and response for each of this Senate Bill's provisions. The link in this article highlights several of the updates, as well as all bully incident reporting options found on the West ISD website, "Reporting Bullying". For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
