Student Engagement Survey: The district deploys a student survey for all students in grades 5-13 every year in late May or early June. This past year, it was deployed after our school year had ended so our students were unable to participate. In order to gain the student perspective, we are deploying the survey through the end of November. Parents can access the questions on the survey through these documents (in English) and (in Spanish).  Additionally, the information gathered by this survey does not include any “protected information” as defined in SB-49.  We would love all students to complete the survey, as their feedback helps to inform our decisions. Students can complete the survey through this link: We will share the link with students during announcements next week for anyone that wishes to participate.

New and Experienced Carpool Users (Including families that use bus transportation): With bus transportation being somewhat unreliable, there will likely be new drivers in carpool that are unfamiliar with our process. Given this, we ask all families to familiarize themselves with our processes for carpool:

  • Videos that explain our process can be found here

  • Be sure you are always entering and exiting campus at the light at the intersection of Watkins Road and Chapel Hill Road.

  • As you line up in the queue prior to dismissal, cars should line up in both lanes and zipper merge (like you would in a double-laned fast-food drive through line).

  • We ask that everyone be careful of their speed once on campus and be watchful of pedestrians and other vehicles. There have been some near misses in the last week.

  • Be patient with each other. It may be someone's first time picking up in carpool and they are unsure of the process.

Thank you for your patience and understanding of our protocols as we work to keep things safe and efficient. 


Business Partnerships:  Would you be interested in partnering with WECIB this year? One of top school to career goals for the 23-24 school year is to provide our students with a variety of work-based learning opportunities.  There are 2 main ways you can support us in making that happen. You could become a Business Partner or join the Business Alliance Planning Committee. What is the difference between Business Partners & the Business Alliance Planning Committee? 

  • The Business Alliance Planning Committee is a team of 8 – 12 members who work together to plan and implement career events for our students. Business Alliance Planning members are the backbone of the organization, providing a critical link between the professional world of careers and high school students. Members typically meet monthly at the school to work in committees developing meaningful career activities.

  • Business Partners are those interested in participating in the work-based learning opportunities but may not be able to commit the time to assist in the planning process.

Please complete this form if you would like to be a part of our efforts to create more engagement opportunities for our students and business partners. Thank you in advance for your interest in supporting our work here at WECIB.
