News and Announcements

West ISD Honors School Board for Advocating for Local School Children

January is School Board Recognition Month, and West ISD has joined the Texas Association of School Boards and other districts across the state to honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for Texas school children and public schools. School board members tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They provide vision and leadership in their roles as advocates and always stand up for public education and guard against anything that takes away from our children or undermines our public schools.

The current West ISD Board Members are: Dr. Larry Sparks (President), Mr. Mike Gerik (Vice-President), Ms. Leigh Crawshaw (Secretary), Mr. Ken Sykora, Dr. John Crowder, and Mrs. Holly Willis.

It’s more important than ever before that our community supports public education in order to ensure today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell our wonderful Board Members "thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community." Let them know West supports them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated. For additional information about the School Board Appreciation Month festivities, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.

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.

The first segment is a "Back-to-School" edition to help Trojans everywhere with information about registration, the 2018-2019 district-wide theme, back-to-school events, and any changes to the district leadership team.
