West Baton Rouge Schools Superintendent Wes Watts said that he has high hopes for the future of the school system, saying that he believes WBR will be a top-10 school district within 15 years.
“In 2020, where are we going to be in West Baton Rouge Parish?” Watts asked the board Wednesday evening during the January 21 School Board Meeting. “I think we will be a top 10 school district. I see the people and the work that’s being done … as a system, if we’re all rowing the boat in the same direction, and we’re all in, then there’s some amazing things that are going to take place here.”
During the board meeting, Watts uncovered the WBR School District’s vision statement, mission vision and core values agreed upon by board members and administrators during a November 8, 2014, school board retreat.
