Dear Parent or Legal Guardian:
The Westford School Committee, through its Open Enrollment policy, provides K-8 parents and legal guardians the
opportunity to request a transfer of their child(ren) in a Westford school outside of their residency assigned school. Such requests are generally made only when a parent/legal guardian feels that enrollment in a school, other than their assigned
school, will best meet the needs of the child.
Requests for Open Enrollment must be made via a formal application completed by the parent or legal guardian.
Applications will be accepted on a “first come, first serve” basis and must be completed, in person, in the
Superintendent’s Office at 23 Depot Street. Applications are available May 1 to June 30 (Monday through Friday)
from 8:30 to noon and from 1:00 to 3:30.
Please note that an application for Open Enrollment does not guarantee that a request will be honored. Student
enrollment and class sizes are important factors in determining if a request may be granted; therefore notifications
will not be made until August, after summer registration takes place.
