The School Committee will interview the three finalists in open session meetings on April 24, 25, and 26, 2018 at 7pm in the High School Media Center. The final selection will be made at a special meeting of the School Committee in open session on May 4, 2018. All meetings will be recorded and posted on our website.
On the same day as each finalist is interviewed by the Committee, school staff as well as parents and community are invited to attend a Meet the Finalist forum. These will be scheduled on the three separate interview days when each finalist will spend “A Day in Westport” to tour the schools and be introduced to the community. The schedule for the “Day in Westport” for each candidate will be finalized and published later next week.
Thank you for your ongoing interest and support for the Westport Community Schools.
