High School Bathroom Facilities Unavailable - Please Use Elementary School Facilities
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
On behalf of the WCSD, I am happy to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We know creating a partnership with you will make a great difference in student performance and culture and climate for the WCSD. There is nothing that we can't accomplish together!
We cordially invite you to come and listen to my opening remarks on Wednesday September 3, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the Jr-Sr High School Auditorium. I will share the recent data from Common Core and Regents assessments, discuss the new implementation of the Google Chrome Books, Study Island, and the redesigned schedule. You will be able to tour both elementary and Jr/Sr High Schools after the presentation to take a peek at our "new" look!
We are very excited to get in and get moving toward SUCCESS! I truly believe we have taken the challenge head on and we will continue to improve on a daily basis and I give you my promise that with a clear, concise, data driven focus we will make gains!
We have hired 10.5 new teachers and we are looking forward to watching them mature from fledgling teachers to soaring educational leaders. They are a talented, bright, enthusiastic and a very well rounded group.
Our building and grounds look fantastic and our fleet of buses are shining brightly and ready to transport students safely each and every day.
Fall sports are practicing daily and the athletes look ready to give us an exciting year. Please stop by and watch a girls soccer game, a Saturday afternoon football game, take a jog with cross country, or walk the course with Golf; we have it all here at WCSD. Follow our website at www.railroaders.net.
Again, we ask that you all take a moment to come and gather as a PreK-12 school community Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m in the high school auditorium. It takes our community to raise our children.

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
It is an honor to serve the WCSD community. I continue my commitment to harnessing the collective energy and talent at WCSD to ensure that every student achieves at the highest level.
We will maintain our focus on preparing students to be college and career ready. Evidence from recently released standardized testing indicates that 88% of our K-12 students are NOT exceeding the standard. As Superintendent, I must make decisive decisions that encompass the district and that are based on data. I cannot arbitrarily make a decision based on interpretation or emotions.
An encounter with the brutal facts is the surest, fastest path to creating the best schools. The changes that will have the most impact on student learning require only that we stay focused on what it is we want to achieve!
THE NUMBER #1 FACTOR IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IS THE TEACHER. Continuous, common sense efforts to conform to effective practice and essential standards will make life-changing differences for students across all socio-economic levels. As we move toward a block schedule which provides increased academic time that allows instruction and learning to dig deeper not wider we will be able to increase student achievement! The instructional leader of the building will drive, monitor and offer feedback to our faculty and staff as they actively participate in the quality of instruction on a daily basis. We will offer the student body a personalized learning environment everyday…and that is our promise to you!
I cordially invite you to be involved in the conversation and continue to design the “new” WCSD into becoming a student centered/teacher focused district.
We have so many great things happening at WCSD. Please be part of the solution and always look at our glass as half full and not half empty!!!
Superintendent Elizabeth Legault
