Webster County Schools and Campuses are Tobacco and Smoke Free
Based on a concern for the health of students and staff that attend and work in the Webster County Schools, the Webster County Board of Education has signed a tobacco-free policy which includes any tobacco product, alternative nicotine product, or vapor product as defined in KRS 438.305. That policy prohibits the use of tobacco products in buildings, on grounds, or on field trips. Tobacco products may not be used in any school building or on any school campus at any time. This includes athletic and all other after school events.
WC "All Day, Every Day" Attendance Initiative
A recent study shows that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, regardless of their age, demographic group or where they live. Improving student attendance is an essential, cost-effective but often overlooked strategy for school improvement, closing achievement gaps and ensuring all our students are on-track to learn and succeed.
