The WISD Ambassador Program is an opportunity for parents and community members to learn about the structure and activities of Weatherford ISD. The program is intended to facilitate communication between the Weatherford ISD and the community. Ambassadors will learn about Weatherford ISD operations and have the opportunity to interact with senior leadership and school board members. Participants will also be provided an opportunity to ask questions, provide input, and make suggestions. The program is also a way to educate our community on the lesser-known aspects of public school function and operation, provide an overview of the wants and needs of our growing district, and share timely topics, accomplishments, and positive news.
Dr. Jeffrey Hanks, WISD superintendent said, “The Ambassador Program gives us an opportunity showcase the great things happening in Weatherford ISD and also the opportunity to gather input from both parents and community members on a variety of topics facing the school district.”
The inaugural class of the WISD Ambassador Program will begin meeting in January 2019. Applications for this program are due December 19th and may be accessed by clicking on the headline.

Weatherford ISD is committed to providing a quality educational experience every day for our students. Occasionally, the weather becomes a factor beyond our control and can cause changes in the daily schedule. We know that closings can cause problems for families; therefore, weather conditions are carefully reviewed before classes are cancelled, started late, or dismissed early. School personnel and transportation plans are in place to assure the well-being of students affected by the decision to dismiss students early.
If weather conditions exist or should develop during the course of the day that will have an effect upon driving conditions and/or school facilities, it may become necessary to delay the start of school, close school, or dismiss students early. Decisions to close school will be announced by 6:00 a.m. or as soon thereafter as possible.
The following factors are considered when we make a decision that alters the normal school schedule:
• Information on road conditions and whether buses/cars can safely travel
• The existing accumulation of snow or ice
• The rate and expected duration of precipitation
• Parking lot and sidewalk conditions
• Weather predictions
The safety of our families and staff will always be our top priority when we are faced with decisions about school closings due to weather.
When changes to the normal school schedule occur, we will post information on the home page of our website, Facebook page, and Twitter account. We will also notify local TV and radio stations, and use our SchoolMessenger calling system to notify our families and staff.
