The Shamrock Academy is a brand new ambassador development program created to give district parents and select Westfield community leaders an unprecedented look into the educational experience and a first-hand perspective into what it takes to run a successful and renowned school district like Westfield Washington Schools from the people tasked with operating our world class educational facilities.
The application period for the 2021-22 class is closed. The application period for next year's class will open at the end of the 2021-22 school year.
One morning per month, participants in the Shamrock Academy will be immersed in our district buildings to participate in personalized and engaging dialogue with district leadership and hands-on experiences to help understand and explore the ins and outs of our school district.
Class members have the opportunity to:
- Gain first-hand knowledge of how WWS functions
- Participate in a dialogue with leadership on education issues
- Experience the engaging learning style used with students
- Develop an understanding of how WWS has created a unique culture of educational excellence that is studied by other high-performing school districts
Participants in its inaugural edition will get a behind-the-scenes look at:
- Business & Finance
- Role of the School Board
- Food Services
- Human Resources
- Student Services
- School Safety
Academy graduates will be personally invited to continue sharing their perspective and insights with the school board and district administration on district issues and topics. We will also partner on district and community projects to share the vision and mission of WWS.
The Shamrock Academy is open to any Westfield resident or community member interested in learning more about our school system. Session dates will be announced before the final selection process.
