Welcome to the Superintendent's Page!

Greetings! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Wayland Union Schools!  Our district serves approximately 3,034 students and is located in northeast Allegan County. It is conveniently located along the 131 corridor between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo and includes the communities of Dorr, Wayland, Moline, Bradley, Shelbyville, West Gun Lake and South Green Lake.  

Our district continues to grow and currently has four elementary schools: Dorr Elementary (PreK - 3rd), Baker Elementary (PreK - 1st) Steeby Elementary (2nd & 3rd), Pine Street Elementary (4th & 5th), a middle school for 6th - 8th graders, and a high school (9th-12th).  Early childhood programs include All Day Every Day Kindergarten and Young-Fives, three and four year old preschool, and Welcoming Schools for children age birth to five. 

Our district continues to upgrade our facilities and offers an 800 seat Fine Arts Center, state of the art Science and Innovation Center at the high school and recently completed an additional wing onto our middle school.  Wayland Union Schools partners with the Van Andel Education Institute for science instruction and has a 1:1 iPad initiative for all grade levels. We are proud to invite you to become partners in education with us as we work to Challenge - Inspire - Contribute.
