Message From Board of Education President, Doug Krenzer
Our biennial caucus to select candidates for the Board of Education is Tuesday, February 1st at Westside High School. This unique process allows our community to hear directly from those who wish to serve on the board. Please attend this important event if you are able. If you cannot attend the caucus, you can vote in person at the high school from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Thank you to the individuals who have stepped forward to offer their time and energy to serve our district. Westside has a strong tradition of community engagement, and that tradition continues on Tuesday. I look forward to seeing you there!
Yours in education,

WESTSIDE STRATEGIC PLAN PROGRESS
Coming February 8: Strategic Plan Progress Dashboard
Starting February 8, there will be a link on the district website where anyone can view our progress. The dashboard was created in partnership with OnStrategy, a company specializing in transparent organizational accountability. This site allows all members of our community a glimpse at how we are progressing toward our four goals and accompanying 26 strategies over the next five years. Moving forward, the dashboard will be updated at least twice a year (January and June), indicating progress our teams are making for the current year's goal.
