• WPEC HISTORY
     

    During the 1996-97 school year, ten superintendents began discussions of ways they could work together to make their districts more efficient and more effective.  In the fall of 1997, those superintendents formalized a working collaboration that was named the Western Piedmont Education Consortium.

     

    The original intent of the ten superintendents was to find ways to save money, save time and to strengthen operations through sharing costs, sharing resources and sharing expertise.
