The Buzz

Superintendent's Welcome

  • Welcome to Williamston

    Whether you are a long-time resident of the community or a prospective parent or student interested in learning about our school system, I invite you to explore our website to find out what makes WCS such an exceptional district. From our widely recognized early literacy programming to our unique variety of elementary related arts classes, engineering and robotics labs, award-winning bands, or 19 Advanced Placement courses, there is something for every learner here.

    The best way to know what makes Williamston so special is to experience it. Visit our community, tour a school, and see for yourself what all the “buzz” is about. If you are already a community member, thank you for your support and commitment to our schools and students. See you around town!

  • Virtual Learning Opportunity

    Williamston Community Schools has become part of the Virtual Learning Academy (VLAC) Consortium in order to provide an opportunity for those wishing to homeschool their students. VLAC is a high-quality, home-based virtual learning opportunity for students in Kindergarten - Twelfth grade. The VLAC program is a public school option for parents (and other caregivers) preferring a flexible, home-based environment and who are willing to guide their child's learning. 

    • There is no cost to the student
    • Equipment is provided if needed (computer, printer/scanner and internet access)
    • Each program is tailored to the individual student
    • It is a blended program, not all work is done online
    • VLAC uses the world-renowned Calvert Education curriculum
    • Mentor teachers are provided
    • Parental guidance is necessary
    • The program is open to all grades but students in grades 10-12 must have a referral from WCS

    VLAC registration for the 2020-21 school year is now open. Please click VLAC.org  or call 248.209.2071 for further information. 

    Students who wish to enroll in VLAC must also submit enrollment paperwork to Williamston Community Schools. Please contact Pam Reinke @ 517.655.4361 x 5116 or reinkep@gowcs.net to receive the enrollment paperwork.

    VLAC is a full-year commitment, students must complete their year at VLAC before they are able to return to a WCS building. However, in some cases, second-semester only enrollment is possible with district approval.
