  • Back 2 School Festival Quiet Opening 

    The Back 2 School Fair will be this Saturday, August 10th at Watauga High School from 10:00 am-1:00 pm.  There will be "quiet opening" from 9:00-10:00 am for students with disabilities and their families.  Please contact either Mike Marcela at or Renee Battle at or via phone at 828-264-7190 to request an invitation to the quiet opening.  We will respond quickly so you will be all set to attend the opening.  

    A quiet opening is designed to be a calmer, smaller event so that students who have sensory issues or get easily overwhelmed can easily "shop" and enjoy the Back to School fair.  We will also have a "quiet room" in place for parents and students who need a space to cool down and regroup and refocus during the fair.  We look forward to seeing you there! 

    ECATS is now LIVE !!!.

    The ECATS system went live this afternoon, Wednesday, July 17th.  All our students have been migrated over to the new system.  Ten WCS staff members are trained in the ECATS Special Education system and three WCS staff have been trained in the service documentation module.  User codes have been assigned to all staff so teachers and therapists and administrators can access the system.    

    We will be providing ECATS training for all EC teachers, therapists and licensed staff prior to the beginning of school on either August 14th or August 15th--depending on your school site.  There are some individual student situations that will need to be resolved through corrective action meetings and/or completed overall.

    The ECATS system is VERY, VERY, VERY similar to EasyIEP.   There are a number of very impressive improvements as well.  It will not be too difficult for those familiar with EasyIEP to adapt to and quickly master ECATS.
