    West Des Moines Community Schools strives to create a technology-rich environment for our entire learning community. The district’s commitment to technology is long-standing and deep: It has been a state and national leader in making a wide range of technologies available to students, staff, and other learners.

    Infrastructure

    In order to provide cost effective and reliable services, the district utilizes a fiber optic wide area network that connects all district facilities. The creation of this network was created through WestNET, a cooperative partnership between the West Des Moines Schools, City of West Des Moines, City of Clive, City of Urbandale, and the Iowa Communications Network.

    Communications Technologies

    • Through the use of Infinite Campus, the district provides students and families with live access to grades, attendance, and other student information.
    • In addition, WDMCS uses Blackboard for mass notifications. To receive a call, text message, and/or email, make sure your contact information is correct in Infinite Campus; this feeds to Blackboard. If you did not update your contact information when going through our annual enrollment process this summer, please log into Infinite Campus and make sure the district has your current email and phone numbers.
