SSDear Parents & Caregivers:

I hope you are enjoying the seasonal changes that living in New England affords us. There is much to celebrate in terms of the trajectory of learning  in the WPS.

Key initiatives for the 2023-24 school year in accordance with the WPS Strategic Plan include: 1). Continued work in practice with Universal Design for Learning (UDL). This initiative supports strong collaboration and planning across professionals to ensure access and equity for all learners in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE); 2).Continued emphasis on SEL:Social Emotional Learning  and Mental Health (MH) and wellness; 3). The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE)  mid-cycle Tiered Focused Monitoring Review (TFMR) will occur on site the week of  November 27th centered on Special Education (SE) and Civil Rights (CR) standards in practice. A special education parent survey from DESE has gone out via email to all families who have students on IEPs. In the event you did not receive a survey, please check your SPAM folder, or contact Michael McDonald, DESE TFMR Coordinator, at [email protected] to participate in the parent survey process. Your feedback is important to us; and, 4).Ongoing professional development, planning, and  preparation for the implementation of the new DESE IEP form in the Fall of 2024.

The Westborough Student Services team provides a range of tiered resources, supports, and services to ensure that students develop the necessary skills to access the curriculum in the most inclusive and least restrictive learning environment (LRE). Utilizing a skill-based approach toward student learning fosters the development of the whole child, while maximizing individual student potential.

The Student Services Team is extremely grateful for the commitment, collaboration, and feedback that we receive from families and caregivers to further inform and improve our practice.  If questions arise, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher, special education liaison, counselor, or Student Services Coordinator.  Here is a direct link to the annual Parent's Notice of Procedural SafeguardsIf you have questions or concerns specific to your child’s IEP, or services, please feel free to contact your child’s school special education liaison.

A core value of the Westborough Public Schools is supporting the diverse and unique needs of all students in the WPS learning community.
