Dear Parents/Guardians,

In light of recent "clown" pranks that have occurred nationally and locally, the Waverly Central School District has decided to prohibit clown costumes on school grounds. We at Waverly look forward to this season of Fall and Halloween festivities planned throughout the district for our student body to enjoy. Any adult who shows up dressed as a clown will not be allowed to enter the school building and any student dressed as a clown will be asked to change. We hope you understand and respect our decision to keep the student body safe.


[WAVERLY, NY] (October 20, 2016) - There are some students who set the bar. They work harder, show more passion and lead by example - in the classroom, on the field and within the community. Today, Wendy's High School Heisman recognizes JONATHAN WARD from WAVERLY HIGH SCHOOL and his dedication to never cutting corners by naming him a School Winner.

Jon is the son of John and Becky Ward of Waverly. "Jon is known by his teachers and friends for his commitment to excellence in our building. We are excited and honored that a program like Wendy's High School Heisman is also recognizing his hard work. We are anxious to see him succeed through the process of this program and possibly become a state and national finalist, representing the Waverly Central School District" said Ashlee Hunt, HS Principal.

Since 1994, Wendy's and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been running the same play to perfection: honoring more than 600,000 of the nation's most esteemed students. This year, Wendy's will celebrate the accomplishments of thousands of the best high school seniors, awarding winners in five phases.

School Winners will receive a School Winner certificate and a Wendy's High School Heisman Patch. State Finalists will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy's High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 gift card. From the group of State Finalists, one senior male and female will be selected from each state and announced as State Winners, going on to the national level event to be held in NYC in December, and aired live on ESPN.

Waverly Middle School identified as Focus School by the New York State Department of Education

District officials have been notified by the New York State Department of Education that Waverly Middle School has been identified as a Focus School and the district as a Focus District due to students with disabilities not making sufficient progress on the New York State English/Language Arts and math assessments.

"It is unfortunate - but opportunistic - that the school will have this label," said Superintendent Randy Richards. "I am disappointed for the students, staff and community. However, I have been involved in similar issues before and I am confident that in the end, our educational program instruction and student learning and achievement will be better for it," Dr. Richards said.

According to Dr. Richards, the next steps in the process include an Integrated Intervention Team (IIT) from the state Education Department visiting the district in May to look at practices and determine recommendations for improvement. The IIT, using a review model, will look at broad areas including instruction, decision making processes, leadership capacity, practices and decisions, curriculum development and support, teacher practices and decisions, student social and emotional developmental health and family and community engagement. The results of the study will be used as a diagnostic tool for school improvement.

The district also has hired Education Consultant Dr. Jean Papandrea to guide the district through the review and improvement process and to work with Director of Curriculum and Instruction Georgia Weed to prepare for the review team's visit and then implement the recommendations for improving student achievement.

"This process will give us a chance to look at how we conduct business and identify those areas where we need to improve," said Dr. Richards. "I believe there is a silver lining in this cloud, as it will be a galvanizing issue that will bring our teachers, parents and community members together for the good of our students."
