On behalf of Warsaw Community Schools, allow me to be among the first to say welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. With the start of a new school year we at Warsaw Schools are very excited for the opportunity to continue furthering our mission “to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.”

The start of a new school year is an exciting time filled with new possibilities for growth and learning. As we look forward to a year filled with educational opportunities and achievements for students and staff alike, we also reflect on our past successes. Throughout the past year, WCS staff have worked diligently to further develop course opportunities, enhance facilities and imagine innovative new ways to equip all students with knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others. This pursuit has led to national and state recognitions of student achievements.

At Warsaw Community Schools, we are committed to the pursuit of a future-ready curriculum that meets the needs of both our community and students alike. Through community input within our strategic planning process, advancement in social emotional learning, safety and security, STEM advancements at all levels, dual and AP college credit offerings, dual language immersion growth, career pathway expansion and facility and infrastructure upgrades we continue to meet the academic growth of our students.

Our Board of School Trustees, staff and administration wish to extend our gratitude for the community’s support as we open our doors to the start of a great year. WCS welcomes your visits, comments and partnerships in education. Please feel free to contact us. We are here to serve and partner in our community’s education with you!

The next eLearning Day for 2017-2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on Saturday, March. 24. This day has been scheduled to make up a school day that has been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.

eLearning Day Procedures

All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9 a.m. on the district and school website. The district website may be accessed by visiting http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us and the school web site may be accessed by visiting http://yourschoolname.warsaw.k12.in.us (ie: http://claypool.warsaw.k12.in.us). All lessons will be organized by school and grade level. Each teacher’s page will provide specific instructions for the assignments to be completed as well as optional enrichment activities. If the teacher has included a parent signature form for student assignments, the parent or guardian will need to sign and return the form to school to verify lesson completion.

The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and turned in any time prior to the start of school on the following Thursday, Mar. 29. Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.

On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line will be available for any general technology questions by calling 574-371-5088 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The Indiana Department of Education recently announced the finalized graduation rate for Indiana high schools during the 2016-2017 school year. After reviewing student data, Warsaw Community Schools is proud to announce its best graduation rate at 95.1 percent in the past 40 years. 

Over the past 4 years, WCS has made significant strides in its efforts to improve graduation rates. Equipped with the knowledge that students who graduate from high school are less likely to suffer hardships in life, WCS created a graduation cohort to examine current student data in order to intervene on behalf of students to ensure their success in meeting their graduation goals. The cohort constantly assesses best practices through data analysis and visiting schools who have shown a marked improvement in their own graduation rates.

“We are very excited about the high graduation rate and continual growth that has occurred in our graduation rate,” stated Dr. David Hoffert, superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools. “It has been a collaborative effort between our teachers (kindergarten through senior year), administration, support staff, community organizations, parents and volunteers.”

In addition to strengthening successful practices leading to student graduation, Warsaw Community High School and Warsaw Area Career Center have also greatly expanded course offerings over the past few years. These offerings allow students a sense of engagement and relevance in their studies as well as pathways forward toward receiving not only their diploma, but college credit and workplace certifications.

Although the rigor of coursework and testing mandated by the state has increased over the years, Warsaw Community Schools students are meeting and exceeding these expectations through the commitment of students and staff alike. Warsaw Schools remains committed to inspiring and equipping all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skill while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.
