Welcome to West Bonner County School District 83


Dear WBCSD Staff, Students, Parents and Community Members,

As you may have heard, the WBCSD Board of Trustees approved the resignation of Superintendent Jackie Branum and has appointed me, Susie Luckey to serve the district as Interim Superintendent until June 30th.   With that said, the School Board has directed me to continue to move forward with the implementation of the 5 Year Strategic Plan, Quantum Learning and the 4 day per week school calendar for the 2023 -2024 school year.  Other initiatives not mentioned above, will continue to be reviewed; however, for the remainder of this school year, the board has chosen the above, along with a spring supplemental levy for our main focus.

I realize that this sudden change in leadership can lead to concern regarding the future of our district.  As Superintendent Branum stated in the opening of the WBCSD 5-year Strategic Plan “The time is now to act with a sense of urgency and desire to ensure that our students are able to graduate college and career ready for the 21st century.”  As we move forward, I am asking you to support me in the journey of using the implementation of the 5-year Strategic Plan as our roadmap to increased academic excellence. 

If you have a question or a concern, find out the facts:  One of the things that can really hurt unity in a community is when the rumor mill gets started, and inaccurate and/or exaggerated information is spread throughout the community.    If you have a question or a concern, please take the time to ask those who may have more information so you can get a better understanding of what has happened, or why something has been done or not done.  If you wish to communicate with West Bonner School District, please follow the communication protocol found on the district website under quick links.

As your Interim Superintendent, with a long history in this district, I will work hard to fulfill my duties to serve the staff, students and families of the West Bonner County School District.
