Will C. Wood certified as ‘Welcoming School’
Ten other SCUSD schools earn 'Welcoming' title, too


Will C. Wood Middle School is one of 11 SCUSD schools that completed the district’s Welcoming Schools Certification Process last year. The process requires schools to complete six “milestones” related to improving school climate and strengthening community partnerships.

The goal of the initiative is to stimulate partnerships between community organizations and schools, make families feel comfortable and welcome at schools, validate families on their efforts and foster a mutual understanding that families are part of the school’s and district’s decision-making process.
