Woodson Center for Excellence

Woodson Parents & Students,

The school year is coming to an end officially on May 22, 2020. All students in grades 8-11 will need to complete their work by this date and turn it in if you have a course not offered in Edgenuity. Work can be turned in to Woodson Center for Excellence on Friday, May 22 from 10:00 am until noon. Seniors will have until May 29th to complete all coursework and IGC projects if applicable in order to participate in the July graduation.

CHROMEBOOK RETURNS:

We would like to get as many Chromebooks as possible returned to us this week! We are asking all families with a Chromebook to finish their final work submissions for Week 9 and then return the Chromebooks (and power cords) to either Abilene High School or Cooper High School. We will be receiving Chromebooks at the drive throughs near the front of each campus from 8:00a.m. to 1:00p.m.  from May 18-May 22. 

After May 22, all remaining Chromebooks should be taken to the front entrance of the AISD Technology Center (2905 N 6th Street, on the corner of N 6th and Mockingbird and directly across from Abilene High School).

Parents, if your child is returning to Woodson Center for Excellence next school year please update your online registration information. You may contact our campus secretary beginning May 26th for more information. 

If you have any questions and or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact us. A huge thank you to the parents and students for a job well done during this strange time.

Thank you,

Jaime Tindall, WCE Principal

Woodson Center for Excellence is an alternative high school for at-risk students. We offer two programs, Bridges and Excel.

BRIDGES PROGRAM

Bridges is an accelerated 8th/9th grade program for students who are 15 years old or older and still enrolled in middle school or a 16 year old reclassified freshman in high school. The goal of the program is to enable students to complete 8th – 10th grade in two years. Once students are classified as 9th graders they can earn credit towards their high school diploma. Students may choose to stay at Woodson or return to their home campus once they are back on track to graduate upon approval from the home campus principal.
