Note from Superintendent Swanson: Jan. 30

Dear Westminster Community,

WPS wants to hear from you!

As this week’s edition of What’s Up WPS details, last week I delivered my annual State of the District report during the Board of Education meeting. In the report, I looked back at some of our accomplishments in 2018, but more importantly, I tried to outline our goals and aspirations for 2019 and beyond.  

You can watch the speech here, or read it yourself here.

So, now that I have shared my thoughts with you, WPS leadership is interested in hearing your perspective. This week we unveiled an online survey for all district parents that will be followed by surveys of WPS students and staff in the near future. All the surveys are available in English and Spanish and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.  

You may recall, that as a part of our Management Pathway Plan with our accountability partner, AdvancED, WPS agreed to seek ongoing, meaningful input from our families and staff. We believe that kind of feedback is critically important if we are to continue to improve. I can assure you that it is worth your time to complete the surveys because AdvancED and WPS leadership will look at the information very closely.

We also value input from the community at large. If you have thoughts you would like to share, please email me at this link.

Kindest regards, 
Dr. Pamela Swanson

Superintendent of Schools
