  • Watauga High School Principal Position

    Good afternoon,

    The position of WHS Principal is now posted to our job listings website. As part of the principal selection process, we will develop a leadership profile to help guide the review of applications and the selection of candidates for interviews. An important aspect of the process is hearing thoughts from across our school community. Please take a moment to complete this brief survey about the strengths of our school, the challenges we face, and the ideal characteristics of our next WHS principal. Please feel free to share this survey with any students, staff, parents, and community members who would like to share their thoughts.
    The application deadline is June 1. Details of the full selection process will be determined by the timing of the selection of the next superintendent. I will update the WHS staff about this process as soon as new information is available.
    Thank you!
    Scott Elliott, Ed.D.

  • Parents, 
    Attached please find the letter home (in English and Spanish) that explains the EOG second administration.  This will be parents first communication and should, after testing, a child become eligible, there will be follow up notification.  The reason we send this (and so early) is for us to be eligible for this opportunity, we must have a BOE plan signed and in place before April.  Our BOE took action and voted to approve our letters and plan during last night's meeting.
    This summer we will offer the Second Administration in Math in grades 3-8, ELA in grades 4-8 and Science in grades 5 and 8.  Also, as a reminder, all second administrations MUST be administered online, is an optional opportunity, and must be conducted following the close of the school year.  Finally, please remember that proficiency will be adjusted to take into account the higher of the two scores; however, growth calculations will be based upon the initial administration of  the EOG.
