Welcome to West Baton Rouge Parish Schools!

  • The impact of our Summer Learning Programs has been amazing. I want to personally thank everyone in West Baton Rouge that worked so hard to plan, prepare, and or participate. We have had an outstanding month of June with students having the opportunity to grow academically and participate in art, music, PE, and recreation activities. Being able to see the smiles on our student’s faces this summer was a welcome treat for our teachers and staff. Our hope is that the extra time and work put in this summer will propel our students to greater achievement and fulfillment leading into the 2021-2022 school year.

    Together we have accomplished so much the past twenty-one months, in particular by having students on campus as much as we did this past school year. A few other highlights for the 2020-2021 school year are listed below:

    • Student Enrollment and Graduation Rates continue to rise
    • The New Caneview K8 campus opened in the winter of 2020
    • Port Allen Middle and Brusly Middle had major renovations completed
    • The new Brusly High School campus opened in August of 2020
    • Port Allen High Boys Basketball - Repeat 2A State Champions
    • Port Allen High Girls Powerlifting - State Champions
    • Brusly High Football - Quarterfinalists for the first time in school history

    Thank you to our families, our community, business and industry partners, all of our employees, and the many others who have provided so much support for our schools.

    Our central office staff, school administrators, and teachers are working hard to prepare for the 2021-2022 school year. We will be cleaning schools, participating in training, and planning so all students will have opportunities to excel in 2021-2022. We look forward to greeting your child on the first day of school, getting to know you better, and partnering to ensure the needs of every student are known and supported.

    If you have not already, please connect with us via Facebook, Twitter, and or through our website,

    I hope you have the opportunity this summer to spend time with your family, friends, and loved ones. I will be doing the same and taking some time to rejuvenate in July in preparation for next school year. It is a priviledge to serve you, your child and this district. If you ever have questions, please contact me at

    Have a great and restful July,
    Wes Watts
