recognized as a blue ribbon school
West Delaware is a progressive district that offers all-day everyday kindergarten, an alternative kindergarten program, a middle school operating with a true middle school philosophy, a high school that is on block scheduling and an alternative high school program. Our dedicated employees direct a host of successful academic programs including special education and talented and gifted. Buildings at all levels are equipped through fiber optic hook-ups with Internet access for communication and research (one outlying kindergarten and pre-kindergarten building is hooked up to fiber at the high school through phone lines.)
We invite you to visit some of the more specific Internet Web Sites listed on the West Delaware home page at www.w-delaware.k12.ia.us. Thanks for visiting!
We are also spending time and resources to improve all facets of technology in the system. Our students and parents can access student grades on line at any time, not just at conferences. Many of our staff are developing web pages for their academic, coaching, and sponsor areas. We continue to search for other ways to use technology to improve both internal and external communication and student performance.
West Delaware has 65 interactive whiteboards, 130 iPads, and numerous document readers, permanently mounted LCD projectors and other technology resources.
We have a very strong dual enrollment program, with a wide variety of courses. Last year we offered 21 dual credit courses, through which students earned 1611 credits at an estimated tuition savings of $901,000. Overall, 50% of our students earn college credit in a given year. 80% of Seniors earn college credit.
Currently we offer five specific and clearly delineated Career Pathways whereby students can earn credits toward a specific program while in High School and finish the program on a faster track at NICC. These include Engineering Careers, Automotive Careers, Business Careers, Manufacturing Careers and Agriculture Careers.
