District Announces Red Ribbon Week Spirit Dress Days

It's Red Ribbon Week across West ISD. The 2019 National Red Ribbon Week theme is: "Send a Message. Stay Drug Free". Our hope is that all Trojans and Lady Trojans will send a message that we want our schools and community to be drug and vaping free. The theme is a call to action to speak out in support of healthy choices. The theme is also a reminder that by staying drug free, we are sending a message to yourself and others about how much we value ourselves, our overall health, our community and our future. For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.

The purpose of those meetings was to bring together community and staff members to review and discuss the May 2018 Bond Results, review Survey Feedback, and present potential Bond timelines and tasks. Next, several Community Forums and Listening Sessions will be scheduled and publicized. The West ISD Board of Trustees also held a Special Called Meeting on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, for Claycomb Architects to hold a Bond Project Workshop. Next, the West ISD Board of Trustees scheduled two Public Hearings for anyone in the community who was interested in addressing the Board about the potential Bond.
