In early June, Laurie Langford, Allie Spiva, and Katie Moore attended professional development through Instructional Partners. This PD opportunity provided the attendees time to develop content as facilitators for the Instructional Partners Standards Boot Camps across Florida. Standards Boot Camp attendees will dig deeper into content (what to teach) and content pedagogy (how to teach that particular content). We look forward to hosting our own Instructional Partners Standards Boot Camp here in Walton County.

WCSD Secondary math teachers attended Math Boot Camp on June 13th and 14th at the Carlene H Anderson Training Center. Teachers worked collaboratively with their peers from across the district to strengthen math instruction and curriculum utilization. On the second day, Christine Petersen shared digital resources for teachers to use for data driven instruction. On June 14th, special guest Darnell from Math Nation shared best practices and new tools for our teachers and students. We would like to thank our Teachers and Katie Moore for this EPIC Math experience for all.

Students in Walton County School District continue in the pursuit of learning during the summer months through the Summer Bridge program!
Students from Walton Middle School, as well as Walton High School work hard to enhance their skills and knowledge in preparation for an EPIC school year in 2018-2019
Before the school year ended, the Walton Education Foundation presented two-year college scholarships to nine deserving Walton Middle School students. These students will be provided a mentor and will be expected to maintain a certain GPA throughout the remainder of their high school years. The scholarship will cover the cost of tuition for their first two years of college. Congratulations to these WMS students!
