WKES is Planning for Student Success!

WKES Staff has developed our plan and strategies for student success and school improvement.   Go under “resources” for “parents/guardians” and then “student success planning” to see how our math and literacy goals were developed and what strategies we will be using to reach our goals as we move into implementation.  If you ever have any questions about our Student Success Plan please contact the school or come to an upcoming SAC meeting.
