School Committee

Welcome to the Westport School Committee home page where you can find our meeting schedule, our policies, and our contact information. Under state law, your school committee has policy-making and budget oversight functions. The day to day operation of the district must be delegated to the superintendent of schools who is appointed and evaluated by the committee. We hope that parents and community members will participate in our meetings and provide input into our policy decisions. We are open to any suggestions that might help us to improve programs for all Westport students. They are why we choose to serve.

Nancy Tavares,
Chair, 2021-2022
