WAHS Fine Arts Film Festival 2015

This video is from the 5th Annual Fine Arts Film Festival, held May 18th, 2015, and sponsored by the WAHS Video Club. The film festival showcases work from students from the advanced video production class (Video III). Students received awards for best writer, director, editor, production design, sound design, and technical achievement. The film festival is done in conjunction with the Fine Arts Night for senior awards. The WAHS Show Choir also performed during the festival.

The videos that received awards were motivational messages to specific age groups. Each video was one minute in length and each student spent an average of 12 hours of production time (scripting, location video shoot, computerized editing with music and graphics) on the video.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2014-2015!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.

Pennsylvania School Performance Profile Overview

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has made significant changes in how student achievement is being reported and calculated for schools and districts in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PDE has released what is known as the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. The public site (http://www.paschoolperformance.org) provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state. The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:

  • To inform the public of school performance;
  • To provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system;
  • To allow the public to compare schools across the state;
  • To give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and needs.

While public schools across the states have previously received designations under No Child Left Behind, schools will now receive a performance score based upon many data points. Test scores, progress in closing achievement gaps, and degree of student growth over time are factored into the scoring while other identifiers of high achieving schools are also considered: graduation, promotion, and attendance rates as well as evidence of offering rigorous courses factor into the calculation. Schools may also earn extra points beyond the 100 point scoring system for those students who have earned advanced scores of the state, industry, and Advanced Placement exams.

In addition to the scoring aspect of the site, the public can compare schools across the state. For schools, the site also offers supports for schools to consider as they identify needs in their academic profile. Administrators and staff in our district have begun to review the data.
