Welcome to the West ISD Strategic Planning Team Work and 2019 Bond Information Site!
It's an exciting time in the history of West ISD! Back in 2017, the West ISD Strategic Planning Team (SPT) held several planning sessions and discussions about the future of our school district. With the completion of the new West Middle and High School campus, the district's attention turned to other areas of need. Topics included student and community growth projections, facility needs, teaching and learning initiatives, technology implementation, staffing, state and federal accountability mandates, and budget needs.
Through this work, goals and actions statements were crafted. One of the action goals centered on the need for a new West Elementary School campus. In May 2018, a Bond Election was held seeking passage of $20 million for a new campus on a new site. The measure failed by 61 votes, but the resolve of the District and community was never stronger. After taking time to partner with and listen to our community, the District organized a new Bond for November 2019. With the focus on the students of West ISD, the community came together and approved the new Bond, 875 to 606.
