Welcome to West Baton Rouge Parish Schools!

  • Dear West Baton Rouge Parish:
    Welcome Back! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Holiday and a Happy New Year. We are excited for the possibilities that 2021 holds and to have our students back on campus. I am very proud to be a part of the WBR School System and what we were able to accomplish during the first semester. We are blessed with outstanding teachers, staff members, students, and community support.  I would like to start the 2021 Spring Semester off by recognizing our Teachers, Students, and Principal of the Year. We have so many excellent teachers and students it is very difficult for the committee each year to choose winners. That being said we are excited to announce the 2020-2021 Students of the Year, Teachers of the Year, and Principal of the Year:

    WBR Students and Teachers of the Year: 2020-2021

    Teachers and Students of the Year 2021

    WBR Principal of the Year:  Cassy Brou, Cohn Elementary School

    *Winners by school are listed with the District Level Winners in bold/highlighted.

    Again, thank you for your patience and understanding during such an unusual and challenging fall semester. I am so proud of the effort our school staffs and teachers gave to help students navigate uncharted territory successfully. We remain focused on helping every student maximize their potential by inspiring academic excellence and developing their character.  It is a privilege to serve you, your child, and this district. If you ever have questions, please reach out to me at


    Wes Watts


    Strong Start 2020
