Helping Our Students See Better...  
The Eye Care Charity of Mid-America (ECCOMA) and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile visited the WSD on September 8th and 9th, and provided free eye exams and glasses to almost 60 of our students! The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is outfitted with two comprehensive exam lanes and an optical dispensary to make it easy for those in need to receive eye care. ECCOMA takes the show on the road around the metro area visiting schools, churches and other organizations and providing services to those in need. ECCOMA is a nonprofit eye health organization dedicated to improved access to vision care through eye care services and eye health education, and they plan on returning to the District in the spring!

WSD Utilizing Enhanced Security Features at Building Entrances
The WSD is in the process of installing new security entry systems in all District schools and buildings. Each school will have an "Aiphone" camera monitoring system at the main entrance, and during school hours visitors will have to be “buzzed in” by the office staff. Visitors will be asked to identify themselves and show picture ID before being allowed into the building.

The Aiphone security system should be operational in all District buildings in the next few weeks. The safety of our students and staff is always a top priority of the WSD, so please be patient! The implementation of these new security measures may increase the time it takes to enter a school during the instructional day.


In the 2013-14 school year the WSD spent $9,440.47 per student, the lowest ADA spending in St. Charles County and below the state average. So where is that money spent?

 
During that same time period, WSD student MAP test scores were in the top 8% in Missouri!
