Community Approves Bond for a New West Elementary School

The passage of this bond marks a significant investment in the future of West ISD and ensures that our youngest students will have a facility that supports 21st century learning in the safest environment possible. The Board of Trustees and Mr. Truitt would like thank to the community for your support and commitment to being good stewards of your tax dollars as we move forward with the final design and construction phases of the project.

West ISD set out to do something bold for our youngest learners. Now, together, we can celebrate the news that a new elementary campus is coming to the community of West. We firmly believe this is a historic day for our town. We believe we will look back on the date, Tuesday, November 5, 2019, and remember the importance of this Bond Election and its impact on the lives of our current and future elementary-aged students and their families.

The November Election Day was a proud day to be a Trojan and Lady Trojan. We cannot thank our staff, families, civic leaders, and community enough for supporting this Bond Project. We are the community of grit and greatness, and the support for the project just showed once again that West is BEST. Thank you again for your commitment and love for the children of West. For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.

NAMM Foundation Recognizes West as a "Best Communities for Music Education"

At the start of school this year, West ISD received notification that our music program was once again honored with the "Best Communities for Music Education" designation from The NAMM Foundation for our outstanding commitment to music education. West ISD is one of 5% of districts across the nation to receive this prestigious award.

The "Best Communities Music Education" designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. To qualify for the "Best Communities" designation, West ISD had to meet application requirements in the areas of funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and community music-making programs.

This award recognizes that West ISD is leading the way in music learning opportunities and designates music and the arts as important elements of well-rounded education for all students. Congratulations to our many students in the arts, their supportive parents, and amazing directors! For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
