New on the 2015-16 calendar are three designated possible weather makeup days at the end of May. The Kansas State Department of Education has required that school districts designate days on the calendar for possible weather makeup days if a district needs to take them.

The calendar may change at the discretion of the Board of Education and/or district administration.

School Finder

School Finder helps parents
locate the right school

 














A new program on the district’s Web site can assist parents and school staff to find the correct neighborhood school. School Finder,
www.schoolfinder.usd259.org, can look up any address within the district boundaries and find the school assignment by grade level. Parents can also find the distance between the residence and the school and if the student qualifies for bus transportation. The site shows a map to help parents develop a safe walking route if the student does not qualify for a bus.  

Schools can also use the program to answer parents’ questions about which school their child should attend and if they qualify for a bus. The data is pulled from the district’s scheduling program that develops bus routes. 

“It’s an easy to use tool to help our families and our schools,” said Fabian Armendariz, Transportation Director.  

A link to School Finder is under the “Parents” section of the Wichita Public Schools’ Web site.  

Pure magnet schools are not listed in School Finder because they do not have a neighborhood address. For additional questions, contact Student Records and Enrollment Services at 973-4498.
