Welcome to the Wayne Trace Local School District, where our mission is to prioritize the philosophy of One District - One Mission - One Vision. Wayne Trace is committed to educational excellence that will help all students achieve at their highest level and to graduate with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to become thinking, productive citizens in a changing global society. This is accomplished through a system which supports community values and integrates community, technology, and educational resources delivered in a safe environment by a caring staff.
Our district is located in the southern portion of Paulding County and is comprised of roughly 180 square miles. The district is made up of three campuses. Two elementary buildings, one in Grover Hill and one in Payne, house grades Pre – K through 6. Our other building is located just north of Haviland and houses grades 7 through 12. Within these three buildings over 160 staff members work hard each day to meet the educational needs of roughly 1000 students.
As a district we pride ourselves on providing our students with a wide variety of opportunities to achieve at high levels. We work to deliver the most up to date curriculum, engage students in a surplus of both extra-curricular and co-curricular activities which we believe will enhance their learning experience.
We are pleased you have chosen to visit our district website where you can find a vast amount of information in regard to our programming. I hope your experience here is a pleasant one and encourage you to feel free to contact one of our three campuses if you need any further information in regard to our district.
