The goal of the Westport Community Schools is to provide students, staff and families with a safe learning environment where students can receive the best possible educational experience and develop both the academic and social- emotional learning skills necessary for success in college, career and life.
Hello, Westport Families and Friends,
I want to welcome you to help us celebrate our 2022 school year!
If you are newly visiting our website, welcome! If you are a frequent visitor to our website, you will see that we have made significant changes to our web appearance. First, we have added video upgrades on the home page to help visitors view the splendor of our community and the joy of our students and staff at the Westport Community Schools. Be advised that this reconstruction of our website aligns with Westport Community School’s 2021-2023 District Improvement Plan. More specifically, the decision to invest in our new website aligns with Strategic Objective Number Two of increasing family and community engagement. By streamlining the design to afford our visitors a more user-friendly web experience, we hope to engage more stakeholders in supporting and investing in our students and programs. Additionally, we hope our new site will visually showcase the beauty of our school and community that makes Westport such a wonderful place to learn and reside.
Regrettably, we are still in 2022, dealing with the challenges inherent in educating students during a pandemic. And while we are justifiably proud of our performance during the 2021 school year in bringing students, staff, and visitors into school safely throughout the year, we do not have the luxury of resting on last year’s successes. As the pandemic enters a second year, it is clear that we have moved from a pandemic to an endemic. As such, we will continue to focus on the Social-Emotional well-being of our entire school community. The focus on mental health will be reflected in myriad ways, including district professional development, scheduling changes, and enrichment activities that will help us maximize our laser focus on educating the “whole child,” as well as our stakeholders.

School and District Report Cards
The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires districts to annually distribute district and school report cards to the families of all students enrolled in each of the district’s schools. Attached, please find the notice that will be posted to the District's website, along with the link to DESE's report card lookup tool.
In recognition of the difficult circumstances surrounding the spring 2021 MCAS season, DESE did not issue updated district and school accountability ratings.
Should you have any questions regarding the District's obligations with regard to district and school report card requirements, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
