Message From Board of Education President, Doug Krenzer
Thank you to the entire community for your vote of confidence on our levy override earlier this month. This will give Westside Community Schools the ability to continue to offer enhanced educational opportunities for all our students in a fiscally responsible way. The campaign to pass this measure took the time and effort of many volunteers, and the Board of Education is grateful to all of them.
We are excited for the fall season of playoffs, performances and special events. Thank you to our hard working students and staff for making these possible.
Board of Education meetings take place at the ABC Administration building, 909 S. 76th St., starting at 6:00pm unless otherwise noted. They are also available to view live on the Westside Community Schools Facebook page.
