District Wide School Safety

The Westport Community Schools recognizes the importance of providing a learning environment for our students, staff and families that is both emotionally and physically safe.  We meet regularly with local safety officials to identify areas for continued improvement in our safety practices and to establish a timeline for implementing changes. In addition, we will be establishing school safety committees at each of our buildings which will include representation of students, staff, administration, and families.

We will continue to update the community, as appropriate and without revealing confidential procedures, periodically through this page and during school committee meetings.

School Choice

Inter-school choice is a voluntary state program that allows a parent to enroll his or her child into a school district that is not the child’s home district.

Annually, school districts, through their school committee, need to take a vote. For the 2021 – 2022 school year, the school committee of the Westport Community Schools voted not to accept School Choice through the inter-school choice program.
