  • Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress

    We will begin taking the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress tests on Monday, April 15th. All schools in the state of Iowa will be using a new format and test this year. Here are a few reminders:

    1. West Burlington Jr/Sr High School will be testing Monday April 15 thru Thursday April 18. West Burlington Elementary has begun testing in some classes, but all students will test April 15-18.
    2. All students (Except Seniors) will report to school as normal. The Jr/Sr High will begin testing at 8:30 and will run a modified class schedule after testing. The Elementary will incorporate testing into their regular class activities.
    3. All tests will be completed online - students will test using a secure site called TestNav on the Chromebooks. Students will need to have earbuds and a fully charged Chromebook.
    4. There is no time limit on the testing periods, we are projecting 2 hour testing windows.
    5. All Students except grades K-2 and 12 will test on Math, Reading, Language Arts/Writing. Only grades 5, 8 and 10 will test Science.
    6. Scores from these Assessments will be used to help determine the School's "Iowa School Report Card." It is very important that you discuss with your child about the importance of doing their best. Being well rested and having a good breakfast will also help your child be prepared.
    7. Student scores on the Math and Reading assessments will help us determine proper placement in school coursework and students who might need extra intervention help or targeted intervention classes.
    8. 10th and 11th grade students wishing to take SCC college level courses will need to score proficient in Math, Reading, and Science on these tests before being allowed to enroll in the college level courses.
    9. 12th grade students will not be testing so they will not be required report to school until 10:25 for the entire week. 11th grade students will not need to report on Thursday April 15 until 10:25.

    It is so important that all of our students know the significance of these assessments and try their best to achieve at their highest potential. Thank you for supporting us! Let us know if you have questions!

  • Superintendent's Message

    Message from our Board President:

    West Burlington Independent School District Students, Parents & Stakeholders

    It is my pleasure to introduce the new Interim Superintendent for the West Burlington Independent School District, Dr. Ken Marang. Dr. Marang has spent over 45 years in education, and served as the Superintendent for the Fort Madison school district for 11 years before retiring in 2016. He has been serving as a substitute teacher in our district and comes highly recommended by our own building Principals. Dr. Marang was approved by the board at the March 25, 2019 board meeting and will serve as Interim Superintendent until June 30, 2019.

    With an Interim Superintendent in place the board will now shift focus to searching for the district’s future Superintendent to fill the position and lead our district moving forward. The board has approved hiring the search firm McPherson & Jacobson, LLC to aid in the search. We are confident that we will receive a high amount of interest from Superintendents looking to join one of the absolute best districts in the entire State of Iowa.
