Waco ISD on Weather Watch

There's a chance for inclement weather in the morning, and Waco ISD crews will be on alert checking conditions throughout the night. Your safety is our #1 concern, and we'll be watching the roads in case they get treacherous. The latest forecasts say we are unlikely to have any accumulations of wintry weather, but just in case, keep an eye on our website www.wacoisd.org. We will also post updates on the District's facebook and twitter pages, and of course we will alert area media if any schedule-changing decision is made.

Prosper Waco

Prosper Waco is an innovative approach to community work that consolidates and builds upon the efforts of existing nonprofits and community leaders to measurably improve the lives of the people of the Greater Waco community.

This collective impact model brings together key leaders and organizations in the areas of education, health and financial security to comprehensively (1) identify and quantify challenges facing our community, (2) articulate a shared vision, (3) establish measurable goals, (4) facilitate implementation of strategies to address each challenge, (5) monitor progress against each goal, (6) share data and resources necessary to accomplish our collective goals, and (7) engage a broad spectrum of community partners, including recipients of services, in the design of its work.
