District Approves Comprehensive School Improvement Plan 2014-2019

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) requires each school district in the state to develop a Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) that drives improvement in student learning and guides the overall improvement of the district. The 2014-2019 Wentzville School District CSIP has been approved by the WSD Board of Education and focuses on improving the District's student achievement levels, programs, and services and will guide the direction of the District for the next five years.

Solar Power is coming to the WSD!

The Wentzville School District has entered into a partnership agreement with Brightergy of Missouri that will place up to 19 solar-power systems on top of schools and other buildings around the District. The new solar arrays will enable the WSD to produce a portion of our energy from the sun and will help to reduce carbon emissions, which means cleaner air and a reduced reliance on fossil fuels. There is also an educational element that will help to teach students about energy production and the environment. “This really is a ‘win-win-win’ scenario for our District,” said Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain. “The solar option will allow the WSD to save money, help the environment, and teach our students some important math, science, and ecology lessons at the same time.” The District will lease the solar panels from Brightergy over a ten year period, and estimates that implementation of the program will save the District more than $650,000 during the term of the lease.

Boone Trail Readers Work with a Member of the Newbery Award Selection Committee 

A group of Boone Trail Elementary students had the opportunity this year
to meet with a member of the Newbery Award Selection Committee to discuss
the process of awarding the annual John Newbery Medal for a children’s book by
an American author. Avid readers in the 4th and 5th grade were selected by Boone Trail librarian Mernie Maestas, and the students met monthly with Newbery Committee member Amy Koester to discuss how books are considered for the prestigious award. Koester is a children’s librarian with the St. Charles City-County Library District and is one of only 15 librarians from across the country that is either elected or appointed to serve on the committee. During their meetings, the students discussed with Koester books they had read and even held a mock vote to determine their own medal winner. “She told us what she did as a committee member and we actually kind of got to do that as well,” said 4th grade student Carly Bruegenhemke . “We got to go to a public library and discuss the books that we read and then vote for our own medal winner. I thought it was really cool that we got to experience a little bit of it ourselves.”
High School Students Advance to State Competitions

High School students in DECA, FCCLA and FBLA all competed in District or Regional level competitions this month and many of our students advanced to compete at the state level in their respective groups. For details about each group, click on the links above.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: the Wentzville School District is adding a delayed start or “snow schedule day”option as an alternative to closing schools for the entire day. Under the right conditions, such as overnight snow accumulations or substantial wind chill readings, the District could delay the start time of all WSD schools by two hours at the discretion of the Superintendent. Parents and guardians will be notified of a delayed start with the same communication methods used to communicate school closing information.
