Who we really are.
Warriors & Wolves United (WWU) is a grassroots, non-partisan committee made up of HUNDREDS of parents, teachers and community members who are extraordinarily concerned about the direction Waukee Schools are headed, and more importantly, the education Waukee students are receiving. The hardworking moms and dads who launched this committee just a few short weeks ago are supporting four candidates for the Waukee Community School District Board of Education who are committed to academic excellence, equal opportunity, parent/guardian choice, relationships, accountability, transparency and fiscal responsibility.
What we believe in. And what we don't.
Here are our promises to you:
We will foster an educational environment in which academic excellence is prioritized and every student contributes fully as their authentic self in safe, welcoming classrooms free of discrimination, indoctrination, ideological activism, and compelled speech.
We will drive greater transparency so parents and guardians are fully informed about their child’s full curriculum, classroom teaching materials, and district-approved trainings for teachers and administrators.
We will be fiscally responsible so every taxpayer in our district understands where their hard-earned money is going.
WWU is passionate about serving and protecting the extraordinary legacy of Waukee public schools. We love our community and want its values, traditions and reputation of excellence to carry on for generations to come. To do this, we must restore unity in our district by working collaboratively and transparently with school administrators, community leaders, parents, students and teachers to identify and advance our common goals.
SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS WHO WILL STAND UNITED FOR ALL WAUKEE STUDENTS
We believe Waukee schools should provide an innovative, engaging, high-quality curriculum that challenges students to perform at their very best academically, socially, and emotionally – while inspiring good citizenry and lifelong learning.
Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion
We believe every child is unique and deserves to learn and grow in classrooms free of discrimination, ideological activism, and compelled speech or beliefs. No student should ever face discrimination based solely on their immutable characteristics, nor should any student be blamed for actions committed in the past by members of the same sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin. We are passionate about inspiring students of all backgrounds to fulfill their unlimited potential.
Relationships are at the heart of meaningful learning and we believe parents, students and teachers should value relationships above all else. In a multicultural society, public schools are the foundation for teaching our kids how to respect individuality and build positive relationships, which means we stand against discrimination, bullying or harassment of any kind. By putting relationships first, we will ensure a positive learning environment that benefits all students, teachers and the broader Waukee community.
Accountability and Transparency
We believe in transparency because parents should be fully informed about what impacts their children, particularly when it comes to curriculum, classroom teaching materials, and staff training. We believe in accountability relative to student and staff Codes of Conduct, which should be administered fairly and without prejudice. In addition, we believe district leaders should be more transparent about Code violations. We will set high expectations for students, teachers, and parents in these areas.
Parent and Guardian Choice
We believe parents and guardians know what’s best for their children. As such, we do not believe school boards should arbitrarily approve ‘one-size-fits-all’ mandates relative to your child’s health, curriculum, or classroom instruction.
Every taxpayer in the Waukee school district has a right to influence public school policies and procedures, and our candidates are committed to making sure the maximum amount of the $85M in annual taxpayer funding is spent on academic instruction, along with the tools and resources teachers need to be successful in the classroom.
