• Certain sections of Michigan law as well as the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) requires that public school districts and intermediate school districts throughout the state make certain general and financial information available to the public.  Some of the information required must be posted on each district's website, while some information simply needs to be made available to the public with the district's website being an optional method to do so.
     
    In this section of this website, the Western School District will make information available to our community that is required by law and by MDE policy. In addition, we will post any other information which we feel may be useful to the public.
     

    If there is information that you would like to see posted on the Western School District website, please contact:

    Certain information which is recorded and kept by the Western School District is private and cannot be disseminated to the public to protect the rights of individuals. The Michigan FOIA has over two dozen exemptions to releasing information, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (primarily student records) and, in certain occasions, things such as a students' academic transcripts.
