West Burlington Independent School District staff, board, and administration would like to wish you and your family a very joyous and peaceful holiday. We appreciate your involvement in your student’s education. WBISD also appreciates your son and/or daughter attending our school.
As 2017 quickly approaches, WBISD is starting to make preparations for the 2017-2018 school year. The school calendar is always an item of interest to students, parents, and staff. I will ask for your input a couple times as we put together a draft of next school year’s calendar. Presently, I’m inquiring about one key aspect of our school calendar. I am asking for your input on the Friday early dismissal. The input that I’ve received so far has been favorable, but I will continue asking. Please send your thoughts, questions, or concerns about our Friday early dismissals to me David.Schmitt@wbschools.us.
West Burlington Independent School District is very proud of the community leadership we have been asserting in regard to the Bridges Out of Poverty movement.

The West Burlington Independent School District Board of Education strongly supports the efforts of our community-based Bridges team in their efforts to combat generational poverty and help those smitten by poverty. We believe, wholeheartedly, that overcoming the barriers of poverty is a crucial element in providing a great education for all of our students. West Burlington ISD did a presentation at the Iowa Association of School Board convention in Des Moines in mid-November. The presentation was well received and some schools in different parts of the state have reached out to us for more information. Read more
