About

To Learn, Grow, Achieve: Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day

Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) is a vibrant community tucked away in the southeast side of Colorado Springs. Our climate and culture gives a comforting small-town feel in a big city environment. Widefield is a place you come to learn, live, and play!

Security/Widefield is the largest unincorporated area in Colorado. District 3 takes on many of the functions which are normally performed by municipal governments. The district is governed by a five-member Board of Education, members of which are elected on an at-large basis for four-year terms.

WSD3 manages Widefield Parks and Recreation, formerly known as the Widefield Community Center. Last year, Widefield Parks and Recreation provided numerous community education and recreation activities for more than 56,000 people. The district also oversees the Security Public Library and has built trails and parks in our area for the citizens of our school district.
