Website tracks WAC happenings
A user friendly website that is updated weekly throughout the school year tracks events, schedules, and topics of interest for Wesson Attendance Center (WAC) teachers, students and parents and facilitates communication among WAC stakeholders.
Online visitors can access the website through the Copiah County School District website at www.copiah.ms. On the School District website, which provides information about the Copiah County School District board and its policies, visitors can select "Wesson Attendance Center" from a dropdown menu to go to the component of the site dedicated to WAC.
The WAC homepage includes photos and stories, notices of upcoming events with access to the full WAC calendar, links to student handbooks and click-on menu items that link to detailed information about WAC in general, specifics about its elementary and secondary schools, special interest topics geared to teachers, students and parents and news about athletic events. WAC staff and teachers are listed on the site with email addresses through which they can be reached. Cobra Chatters -- a weekly newsletter that covers what is happening at WAC and spotlights dates -- is also accessible on the homepage.
Through the WAC website, parents can download an Active Parent application form to access information related to their students -- attendance, schedules and grades -- and school news. WAC verifies completed forms and assigns a login name and password to use the Active Parent website.
The WAC website is maintained and updated from the start of the school year in August through May, when it ends.
