A Message from Dr. Rees

Dear Weatherford ISD Community,

Hello Weatherford, Texas!  My name is Beau Rees and as of Monday, June 1st, I am the new superintendent of schools for Weatherford ISD.  A few of the many qualities that attracted me to this fine city (besides the incredible school district) are the salt-of-the-earth people, the hometown feeling, and the strong sense of community pride. These traits are hard to find, and we are all blessed to live, work, learn, and play in Weatherford.
