Information for Parents Available 
Preparations for the 2014-15 school year are in progress and parents may want to review updated information as it becomes available. Here are examples of updates that are available now and notes about additional work in progress to help keep you informed. 

The updated student handbook for grades prek-8 is available in English and Spanish on the Parent Links page of the website  Paper copies are available on request from any school office. 

Information on the 1:1 laptop program for 8th graders, which is a new initiative for the 2014-15 school year, is available through the link on the left hand side of all school websites as well as the WCS homepage. 


Applications for free and reduced price school meals will be sent home at the start of the new school year along with other important information. 


The review and revision of all Board of Education policies is underway.  The first revised policies are expected to be approved this summer but the completion of this work is expected to take another 12-18 months. The updated policies will be available through the Board policies section of the website as they are approved and paper copies can be requested from any school office.

In addition to the above changes, WCS is also welcoming very important new faces in our schools, including Superintendent Dr. Scott Elliott. In the photo, Dr. Elliott (on the right) greets Watauga High School Prinicipal Marshall Gasperson after the special Board of Education meeting that announced Dr. Elliott's appointment.

Along with a new superintendent, WCS will have two new principals for 2014-15.  Philip Norman began his duties as Green Valley School principal July 1 and recruitment is underway for a new principal at Valle Crucis School.  Human Resources Director Dr. Stephen Martin and his team are also very busy working with principals to fill the positions of teachers and other personnel who have retired or resigned in recent months.
