Schools today face many challenges, not the least of which is communication. Ensuring accurate, timely and trustworthy communications with key stakeholders is integral to supporting student success. Because it is so important, Williston Basin School District #7 is administering the SCoPE Surveys, three surveys dedicated to evaluating the effectiveness of our communication with Faculty and Staff, Parents and Families, and the School Districts we serve. Please take a moment to complete this survey by February 16th: https://survey.k12insight.com/r/xocLb1
Feb. 6-10 is National School Counseling Week! We want to say THANK YOU to all of our School Counselors for all they do to help our student succeed!

Today is the 100th Day of School! Only 72 more to go... but who's counting?
The Williston Basin School District and the Superintendent expect that all concerns be treated with respect. Parents/guardians are often discouraged when they attempt to communicate with central office administrators and school board members and are sent back to building-based officials in order to resolve a problem their child may be experiencing in school. To prevent that frustration, parents can become informed about the “chain of command,” or where to begin the communication sequence regarding their problem or concern. Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communicating directly with the educator in charge of the class or program. Each situation should first be addressed at whatever level the initial action was taken, with appeals moving on to the next level in the chain of command. The easiest way to communicate at the building level is via ParentSquare, email, or our Comments & Inquires Form; a phone call is the next preferable way. The easiest way to communicate for specific departments is our Comments and Inquiry form; an email or phone call is the next preferable way. Here at Williston Basin School District #7, we ask that you address any issues in the order as laid out in our Chain of Command process below.

Thank You Dear Community Members and Businesses, I want to thank all the community members and businesses who donated their time and resources last week during our reunification process. During a time of need in our community, you took the opportunity to help where there was a void. As this event happened at the start of our lunch periods at Williston High School, a lot of our students and staff did not get lunch. Our food service department was able to bring water, juice and snacks; but our community filled the gap. Thank you to MWEC, Hardees, 3 Amigos, John Sharisky, Land Shark Services LLC, and Kristina Days for donating food and water. Thank you to MonDak Portables for donating portables so our students and staff would have additional restrooms. Also Papa Johns for being able to facilitate our large order of pizzas for our students, in a timely manner. Thank you to our community for rallying around our students and staff during a stressful time. Dr. Richard Faidley
