Bad Weather Information for Parents

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.

2019-2020 School Calendar Parent Survey

Dear WISD Parents and Guardians,

We received over 1700 responses to the 2019-2020 School Calendar Preferences Survey. Based on that feedback, two draft calendars were developed. The school calendar must show 187 days for teachers and a minimum of 75,600 instructional minutes for students. Each of the draft calendars meets those requirements.

Please click on headline to view a document explaining the difference between the two calendars. The document includes results from the previous preferences survey, the two draft calendars, and the comparison between the two calendars. We ask that you look at this information carefully and vote for the calendar that you feel best meets the needs of our students, families, and staff. The survey link will be open until Monday, October 30, 2018 at 8:00 am.

Once we receive the survey data, Weatherford ISD administration will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.

Thank you for giving feedback on the 2019-2020 school year.
