Student Waivers

ELEMENTARY INDISTRICT WAIVER INFORMATION

Generally, students will be required to attend school in the attendance area where they reside.  If you are interested in applying for a waiver to have you child attend an elementary school outside of your attendance area, you will need to complete this FORM and submit it to the Superintendent's Office for review.  Due to class size constraints and the fluctuation of enrollments over the summer months, decisions on indistrict waivers will not be made until August 15th.

Please note that with a waiver, Westbrook will not provide any transportation for your child.  Waivers are only valid for the school year requested and must be requested each year you wish your child to continue in a school that is not in their attendance area.  Approval of a waiver does not guarantee approval in subsequent years.
