Last fall, WSD made history by becoming the first district in California and the fourth district in the United States to offer a Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Academy. We are thrilled to announce that at the end of the Academy’s first school year, all 38 of our dual language kindergartners received the Pathway to Biliteracy Award from the Orange County Department of Education!
The 3rd Annual WSD Safe and Healthy Summer Family Resource Fair was a big success with over 250 people attending. The Fair was held at the Westminster Family Resource Center, which was the perfect place to host the event so families could see first-hand where they can go for assistance, classes and information during the summer months when school is out. Over 400 free books were given out to students and McKinney Vento funding will support free backpacks and school supplies to more than 100 students that signed up at the event.
Westminster School District has been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as one of only 13 public school districts in California to receive the title of 2015 Honor Roll School District.
The Orange County Department of Education honored WSD's 9 Gold Ribbon Schools and 7 Academic Achieving Schools at a special ceremony Monday. The Gold Ribbon Schools Award recognizes California schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. The Academic Achieving Schools Award is given only to schools receiving federal Title I funds that excel in meeting the educational needs of students.
