Parent Involvement

An important goal of West ISD is that parents, community members and educators be active partners in the education of our students.  We encourage you to discuss with the campus principal opportunities for parent/community involvement and volunteering opportunities at each campus. The most valuable contribution you can make to the education of your children is to be supportive of their academic endeavors from providing help and support on homework, to communicating with teachers, and reviewing progress reports and report cards with your child.
