Washington School District has educated generations of local families for nearly 140 years. The community of Washington, sharing the common value of education, founded this educational establishment in the year 1867 in pursuit of free and public education for all. There is a perpetual undercurrent of civic pride and tradition that provides a means for members of our Prexie community to learn about the world around them and grow intellectually beyond their expectations. Guaranteeing our students achieve and become productive, honorable citizens are responsibilities that are actively and willingly shared among administrators, teachers, parents, community members and the students themselves. We are fortunate in Washington School District to have a caring, supportive learning community that encourages our students to meet and exceed expectations. Read more
Superintendent Message - April 4, 2014
This notice is due to the recent expulsions due to students bringing BB guns to school. We have had incidents involving elementary students. The last time we dealt with multiple expulsions due to students bringing non-guns/toys to school was in 2007. On February 1, 2007, I sent a similar notice to parents.
We have always followed requirements of Policy 551 Weapons and Dangerous Instruments.
Once a student is caught with a dangerous device we also must follow procedures to render the consequence. Accused students have due process rights and schools have confidentiality requirements.

This view is upheld by individuals who are uneducated about the behaviors and characteristics of this disorder. The outline was created to educate people of the community about this confusing and prevalent condition.
