Welcome to West Baton Rouge Parish Schools!

  • What a Year!

    During the past twelve months we have experienced changes and challenges like never before. Covid-19 has impacted us all and without a doubt has changed us forever. My hope is that it has changed us all for the better. Through this most difficult season we should all be more mindful of our blessings, cherishing the small things in life that mean so much. May we be more patient and less selfish, more caring and less abrasive. Like gold being refined by fire, my hope is that we have all been refined by the Covid-19 fire to make us more valuable to others.

    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding through the new safety protocols, quarantines, and alternate schedules implemented this year. Your help has allowed us to have students in school on campus more than anyone could have predicted. I look forward to the day we no longer say the words unprecedented, new normal, or socially distanced. I look forward to greeting others with an unmasked smile, a handshake or a hug, instead of an elbow bump. I know we are not at that point yet, but the hope of that day is near.    

    The work we have done in West Baton Rouge, as a school system and as a community is something we should all be very proud of. Together, we have done more than just survive this past year, we have grown, progressed, and conquered the multitude of challenges we faced. So many have gone above and beyond to volunteer, feed, teach, tutor, and provide support to students and families. Your commitment and love for the children in WBR has allowed them to thrive during the most difficult of circumstances. West Baton Rouge has truly Made Awesome Happen!

    With great appreciation,
    Superintendent Wes Watts
