WC "All Day, Every Day" Attendance Initiative and Winner of the Month
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.

Webster County kicked off its annual Work Ready event on August 22, 2014. Webster County earned it's "Work Ready in Progress" designation last December. The "Work Ready" designation allows counties, regions and states to highlight the qualifications of their workforce to potential employers. This designation also indicates to employers that Webster County is focused on meeting their needs. To become work ready the community must raise the number of residents who have received the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). This certification can be earned by taking three WorkKeys assessments that measure real world skills that are "key" to job success:
