School Community Network

What is the SCN?

The WDMCS is dedicated to involving our parents in what we do. Made up of parents, teachers and administrators from across the district, this group provides an opportunity for a face-to-face exchange of ideas and information. Its members also help us share information about district with the community.

The  membership is outlined in district administrative rules.

Membership includes:

  • two representatives from each K-12 parent organization board

  • two building staff members

  • one elementary and one secondary administrator

  • one administrative representative specifically from Valley High School

  • the Director of Community Education or designee

  • one representative from the school board

  • the superintendent or designee

  • members of the superintendency or designee(s)

  • School/Community Relations Director

WDMCS Strategic Plan:

The district has been working on a Strategic Plan since 2018. It contains three goals for all learners. When learners graduate from WDMCS they are ready for post-secondary learning, they are career ready and they are ready for life.

Click here to see in detail more about the strategic plan and here to see the indicators of student readiness . It's very fascinating!

Master Plan Facilities Update:

The school board voted in July 2019 to approve OPTION D of the facilities master plan. This effects Clive now as we are under construction and effects Clive toward in 2024 when most of the master plan is projected to be in effect. At that point Clive will transition to a PreK-5th grade school. Indian Hills will be 6th-7th, Southwoods 8th-9th and Valley 10th-12th.

Online Enrollment Process:

District is working to streamline this. They know it was tedious for the first year. However, the good news is, returning families will not be required to submit new information every year. They'll just need to review what's already in the system and make changes especially to medical information.
