Welcome to the USD 353 School District!
To: Patrons of USD 353 Wellington
From: Office of the Superintendent

Recently, this office and the Board of Education have received phone calls and letters from patrons who wish to remain anonymous regarding their complaints. Please realize this will be the official position of those associated with USD 353 Wellington concerning this issue.

The Board and/or administration of USD 353 Wellington will not respond to questions or concerns which arrive to us through anonymous notes, letters, or phone calls. The board maintains official policies and complaint procedures but the complainant must be identified for this process to operate successfully.

This statement is not intended to close any doors of communication with any patron or group of patrons, however, in all fairness to the district employees or others the complaint is being lodged against, they have the right to know who they are dealing with.

On behalf of the USD 353 Board of Education,

Rick Weiss
USD 353 Wellington

Bids must be sealed, marked and addressed to the Clerk of the Board of Education, Unified School District No353, Sumner County, Kansas.  Failure to do so may result in a premature opening of or failure to open such bid.  No bids will be received after the date and hour specified in the “Invitation for Bids.”

By order of the Board of Education, Unified School District No. 353,Sumner County, Kansas. April 9, 2015.
A NEW transitional USD 353 website has been setup and can be accessed via the link below.  On the new site, you'll find updated info, events, schedules, etc. for the 2014-2015 school year, which will be updated regularly on the new site, not the old site you are currently on.  At this time, the new site remains under construction, while more and more information is transferred from the old site and additional new information is added. Most of the info should be transferred by the time school starts on Tuesday, Aug. 19th.

This old site (again, this current page) will remain active only so the "School Fusion" aspects can still be utilized by students, staff and parents exactly as they have been utilized in the past. Eventually (no exact timetable yet), the School Fusion functions on this old site will be replaced by new applications with similar features and functions on the new site.  Once those transitions are completed, the "new" site will become the "only" site.  Until then, we ask your patience as we blend the 2 sites together into 1 and ask you use this "link-bridge" between the 2 sites in the meantime.

So in essence, you will use this “old site” for now for School Fusion functions only and will use the new site for finding just about everything else with regards to the district. If you don't use School Fusion functions, you may want to "bookmark" the new site until the complete transition takes place.  This is a temporary arrangement and your patience is appreciated. Again, the new site will become the only USD 353 district website once the transition of all functionality from the old site to the new site is complete. Thanks!
