The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District is where educators strive to open the minds of children to inspire the dreams of tomorrow. Our educators are doing this in a variety of ways, most importantly through our efforts to become a professional learning community.
What is a professional learning community? It is a group, specifically our teachers and administrators, which has pursued advanced training to enter a profession and remains current in its evolving knowledge base. Part of that evolving knowledge base is the increasing availability of student test score data. The ready availability of district and state test score data has facilitated the identification of curriculum and instructional strengths and weaknesses and provided a map to measure improvement.
By thoroughly examining data, adapting curriculum to state standards, and matching instruction to student needs, educators will continue to help students find academic success.
The mission of the School District of West Allis - West Milwaukee, et al, in partnership with family and community, is to provide challenging curriculum and engaging instruction so that every student may attain academic success.
