Starting on Thursday, September 13, 2018, Westside High School will utilize a new academic support system called ICU Database. What is ICU? ICU, which stands for Intensive Care Unit, emphasizes our intensive care about academic performance at Westside. ICU is an academic support system for students and a communication tool for teachers and parents in that the system is built around a school-wide electronic database that tracks missing assignments. Click HERE for more information on ICU Database.
Parents/guardians can purchase voluntary insurance for their students. The insurance can be bought for school time or for 24-hour coverage. This insurance is purchased directly from the vendor, so the school is not involved in these transactions. Prices and coverage can be found HERE.
Schoolwide Grading Policy
WHS has a schoolwide grading policy that brings consistency to course weightings, retakes, late work, and exam exemptions. The policy can be found under the "Academics" tab on our website.
