District Adds 2018 State Accountability Links and Information to Website

The state of Texas via the Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts and schools. Beginning this year, all multi-campus school districts received an accountability rating based on an A–F scale. The West ISD received a letter grade of "B". Districts received a grade or rating based on performance in three areas: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. All campuses also received a rating of Met Standard, Improvement Required, or Not Rated. The West Elementary 2018 Accountability Hearing Presentation and the latest Community Update Meeting Presentation are also linked to this website.

District Announces New Random Student Drug Testing Program, Grades 7-12

On June 6, 2018, the West ISD Board of Trustees approved a new Board policy to conduct random drug tests on students in Grades 7-12 who participate in school-sponsored extracurricular activities (both UIL and non-UIL sanctioned). The new policy also includes students who park a vehicle on West ISD property. West ISD and the Board of Trustees believe the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities is a privilege offered to eligible students on an equal-opportunity basis. The use of drugs or alcohol by any student presents a hazard to their health, safety, and welfare. By using random drug testing, the District is able to detect and prevent illegal drug and alcohol use among students.

To be eligible to participate in any school-sponsored extracurricular activities or park on West ISD property, a secondary student (Grades 7-12) must agree to participate in a drug-testing program that includes random testing throughout the school year. A signed consent form must be on file for each student before they are able to participate in extracurricular activities or park on West ISD property. The consent form does require signatures from both the participating student and their parent/guardian. For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
