Welcome to Westside Elementary School - Home of the Panthers!
The Baker County School District is committed to meeting the needs of all students in a safe, nurturing, and encouraging environment. The Baker County School District involves parents, students, teachers, and community members in the process of determining goals that meet student needs.
The vision of the Baker County School District is to prepare individuals to be lifelong learners, self-sufficient, and responsible citizens of good character.
A substitute training class will be offered on Thursday, January 6, 2022, from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm. The training will be held at the Baker County School Board Meeting Room.
