Board Of Education

West Hartford has an elected seven-member Board of Education which is required by State Statute and Town Charter to oversee public education.

Non-Resident Admission



Board policy concerning the admission and attendance of non-resident students in West Hartford public schools is guided by state law, and the Board's interest in maintaining stability for the student and his or her classmates when reasonable.

A non-resident child may enroll in West Hartford schools under the following conditions:

1. When he/she lives in West Hartford with a relative or non-relative and the following conditions prevail:

a. that the placement is permanent;
b. is provided without pay; and
c. not for the sole purpose of obtaining school accommodations.

2. On a tuition basis in special education programs when the local enrollment is below the established desirable class size and by mutual agreement.

3. On a tuition basis for classes of the West Hartford Summer School.

4. When a student is enrolled through the auspices of Project Choice.

A child who becomes a non resident subsequent to his or her enrollment in the district may continue to attend West Hartford schools under the following conditions: 

1. Upon the recommendation of the Superintendent in order to prevent a deleterious interruption of students' educational program within a given school when the family has moved from West Hartford.

2. With the approval of the Superintendent of Schools, a high school student who has completed at least one full school year in a West Hartford high school may be permitted to complete the remaining full school years at that high school on a tuition basis if his/her parents move from West Hartford; except that, with the approval of the Superintendent of Schools, a student who has completed at least the sophomore and junior years in a West Hartford high school when his/her parents move from West Hartford may be permitted to complete the senior year tuition free.
