Issue 1 - August 3, 2006

     It's that time again!  We'd like to welcome you to the 2006-2007 school year, and the first issue of IN FOCUS. This week's newsletter will provide you all the vital information you need to know as classes get ready to start.  You can find links to each section on the left side of this page. 

     More than 27,000 students are expected to attend Williamson County Schools for the 2006-07 school year with the first day a half day on Monday, August 14.  The first full day for students will be Tuesday, August 15. For a complete calendar, click on the DISTRICT CALENDAR section on the bottom left portion of the page.

     Students will be served at 36 school sites:  20 elementary schools, one kindergarten through eighth grade school, seven middle schools and eight high schools.  A new elementary school is being constructed to serve students in the Southern part of the county, and a new school is being to built to replace Nolensville Elementary and to serve more students in that area.  Those schools are scheduled to open with the 2007-08 school year.  Check out the NEW PLACES portion of the newsletter for further information on school construction and progress.

     This first newsletter features only back to school information.  In the future, IN FOCUS will dive deeper into the heart of our schools, taking a closer look at what's going on inside the classroom.  We will feature all the great things happening with our students, teachers, and staff.  You, as parents and community members, are encouraged to provide us with feedback and input as to what you think.  This newsletter will come out every other Thursday.  Also, please spread the word about IN FOCUS to your friends, family, and anyone else who may be interested.

     We look forward to providing you with all the good news coming out of Williamson County Schools!  Here's to a great 2006-2007!
