Wills Point ISD is in the beginning stages of starting a new SHAC committee. Every independent school district is required by law to have a School Health Advisory Council, (Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code.)
SHAC is an advisory group of individuals who represent various segments of the community and the children of WPISD. The group will act collectively to provide advice and make recommendations to the school board and administration on various aspects of school health, including, but not limited to nutrition services, health education, physical education and parent/community involvement.
Wills Point Independent School District will conduct school board trustee elections on May 10, 2014.
The first day to file for a place on ballot will be Wednesday, January 29, 2014. The last day to file for a place on the ballot will be Friday, February 28, 2014, at 5:00 p.m.
An application for a place on the ballot is available at the Wills Point ISD offices at 338 W. North Commerce Wills Point Texas from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please note that Wills Point ISD will be closed for spring break March 10th thru March 14th 2014.

TEA Releases Federal Target List
According to a waiver granted by the U.S. Department of Education to the Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas schools are no longer designated as having made or missed Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). As a result, all staging designations for Wills Point ISD and its campuses have been removed. Instead, only 15 percent of Title I schools are being identified as Priority or Focus Schools, subject to a series of federally-prescribed interventions.
Specific to NCLB provisions in the waiver, TEA has identified nearly 900 Title I schools and charters as a Priority or Focus campus. Wills Point ISD has only two campuses that currently received Title I funds. Neither of these campuses was identified on the federal target list.
Utilizing data from the 2013 Accountability System, 297 campuses have been designated as a Priority school under the federal system. Priority schools include a combination of Tier I and II Texas Title I Priority Schools (TTIPS); Title I schools with graduation rates below 60 percent; and the lowest-performing Title I schools based on achievement results on reading/math safeguards at the All Student level. In addition, 598 campuses have been designated as a Focus school. These schools include campuses with the widest gaps between reading/math performances. Those campuses identified as focus or priority are required to conduct interventions that will become part of the school’s campus improvement plan for the 2014-2015 school year.
Although no campuses in Wills Point ISD were identified in the Federal System for improvement, Wills Point ISD will continue to increase rigor and student engagement to positively impact student performance.
