One Page Summary 2016-2017 School Calendar

Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, school districts in Michigan must provide a minimum of 180 days of student instruction.  For many districts including Western, this means having to add days onto their existing calendars.  Over a year ago, the superintendents in Jackson County and their boards of education began talking about developing a "common calendar" for the county.  After much discussion and receiving a waiver from the the State of Michigan to start before Labor Day, the common calendar for Jackson County is becoming a reality.  We are very aware that not everyone likes the notion of starting school before Labor Day, but for many of us this is returning to what was done prior to the 2006 legislation.  Regardless, the 180 day requirement exists and whether we add time onto the beginning or end of the school year it will shorten summer vacation.

Located 5 miles west of Jackson in the heart of Southern Lower Michigan with 3 large cities just an hour away, Western has vast resources at our disposal and yet we are able to retain our rural "home town" atmosphere.


We are very appreciative of our parents and community members who support and contribute to the education of our students here at Western.

Our Vision:

Encouraging all students to dream, while preparing them to succeed as global citizens.

Our Mission:

Working together with our community to educate all students as individuals to become successful in a complex world.
