The Regional Business Office ensures the needs of the district are met through budgeting, payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, financial reporting and statistical data.  The office administers the district’s business affairs to make educational decisions to benefit student learning with the financial resources available.  

Food Service
Todd and Lori Hartnett, Webster City School Food Service Directors along  with their dedicated Nutritional Staff strive to provide healthy breakfast and lunches daily for all students. Research shows students who eat school meals consume more fruits & vegetables, have better attendance, and higher test scores. 
 
Our staff not only takes pride in cooking and preparing meals but truly enjoys serving the kids each day. Educating and encouraging all students to eat school meals is our goal.
Health Services

The school nurse supports student success by providing health care through assessment, intervention, and follow-up within the school setting. The school nurse addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs of students and supports their achievement in the learning process.  The school nurse handles the daily health issues that occur with students and staff within the school district.

Teacher Leaders

We put students first by supporting teachers as they meet the needs of all students.

Since the 2015-16 school year, Webster City Community Schools has been awarded annual funding by the Iowa Department of Education through the state’s Teacher Leadership and Compensation (TLC) system. The system is designed to tap into the expertise of top teachers to improve classroom instruction, raise student achievement, attract and retain more effective teachers, and reward teachers for extra responsibilities. Teacher Leaders work to increase learning for all students by strengthening teaching practices through job-embedded professional development. The grant provides the District more resources and opportunities to support its vision and goals.

Teaching and Learning

Webster City Community School District provides a comprehensive, diverse, and challenging array of rich learning experiences to meet the needs of all students. Based on State and National Standards, WCCSD's curriculum provides the framework of a student’s educational journey from kindergarten to senior year in high school. 

The District uses four student-centered questions to guide our curriculum, assessment, instruction, and professional development to create a structure of support to promote each student’s success:
1. What do we want all students to learn?
2. How will we know when they have learned it?
3. What will we do when they have learned it?
4. What will we do when they have not learned it?

Technology

The Technology Department provides enterprise IT services for the school district. The department supports classroom equipment, 1:1 student and staff devices, and specialty equipment in various district venues. The department also maintains and operates a maker space available to staff and students.  

Transportation

The Transportation Department operates a fleet of 28 buses and 8 vans throughout the school district. The department provides transportation for over 700 students to and from home to one of our 8 schools, and for over 1000 activity trips a year.

The goal of the WCCSD transportation department is to provide the students of this district with a safe, secure and efficient transportation program. This goal can only be achieved through the combined efforts of school, students, and parents. Involvement from all parties is critical to the success of the program.
