Superintendent Thomas F. Aubin would like to provide an update regarding Westport Community Schools’ recent technological issues.
Over the past few weeks, all buildings in the district have experienced intermittent Wi-Fi, internet connectivity and phone issues. While Westport Schools has since successfully resolved phone issues, the district is still working to resolve internet and Wi-Fi issues at this time.
“As we are aware, many school districts in Massachusetts have been experiencing technology issues, and Westport Schools continues to experience connectivity issues as well,” Superintendent Aubin said. “I would like to thank our Technology Department for their commitment to resolving these issues.”
The Technology Department has worked relentlessly alongside the district’s internet service provider, as well as outside engineers, to review and make changes to the internet data flow and Wi-Fi access point locations.
As of Monday, May 3, Westport Schools has significantly reduced remaining issues, but will continue making adjustments in preparation for Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) testing.
Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact their building principal.
