Community Members Voice Opinions and Concerns on WFISD Schools

Wichita Falls Independent School District parents, students, faculty and staff had an opportunity to voice their opinions on the current conditions of the district's schools on Thursday during a community facility input meeting.

Dozens of community members gathered at Washington-Jackson Elementary School to hear from facility study assessors about the current status of all 31 WFISD schools.

The meeting started with facilitators asking those in attendance questions ranging from how would they rate WFISD schools for safety and security to the conditions of schools and athletic facilities.

Community members used clickers to give real time answers to the assessor's questions.

Later, folks were divided into smaller groups for more in depth discussions on the results on each questions.

Parents and students talked about what they thought of the results.

Community members like Wileen Lewis say they attended the meeting because they are interested in the progress of education and want to make sure students get what they need in life.
"I'd like to know that the students are getting a good wholesome education," Lewis says. "That when they leave Wichita Falls and go to other colleges, that they are competitive and they will be acting according to the competition that they are facing."

For those who could not make Thursday's, the district will release a survey on their website that will be active starting on Friday, March 29 through April 12.

A final report is expected to be ready for the school board by the end of May.
