School Choice is a state program which allows school districts to accept students from other Massachusetts towns. This is an optional program as not all towns participate.
Although Westford participates in School Choice, the Westford School Committee determines, on an annual basis, openings for the upcoming school year. This determination is made in May after the Superintendent of Schools reviews current and projected enrollment figures and class sizes and presents to the School Committee his/her recommendation.
If the School Committee votes to accept School Choice students the following year, an advertisement is placed in the Lowell Sun and in all surrounding towns' local newspapers, as well as on this web page, with a deadline date for applying. School Choice students are chosen on a lottery basis. Applications are only available after the School Committee determines that openings will be available for the upcoming year.
At the present time, School Choice applications are not being accepted. Those interested in the Westford Choice program should check this page regularly for updated information.
Information for enrolling students who are Westford residents can be found on our Registration page.
