Welcome to District Operations
District Operations coordinates key business services such as child nutrition, student transportation, facility management, safety and emergency preparedness, accounting and finance, budgeting, and human resources. Many of the district’s essential services, not directly involving instruction and student support services, fall under the oversight of District Operations.
We serve and support 1,000+ dedicated district employees, we maintain and improve nearly 1 million square feet of building space, we manage and optimize over 10,000 network devices and connectivity for thousands of users, we plan and serve over a half-million student meals, and steward and safeguard nearly $90 million dollars of budget capacity. Increasing the impact, efficiency, and effectiveness of the second-largest school district in Vermont is something we are passionate about.
Bottom line: We leverage powerful district resources of people, property, projects, and plans to deliver on the promise of merger: better educational outcomes, more opportunities for all students, together.
EWSD is 10 schools, 3 communities, and 1 district that is “growing hearts and minds for a better tomorrow every day, every way, every one.”
The Promise of Merger
The Board of Essex Westford School District believes it is essential to remain focused on the original intentions of the merger. The Essex-Westford Regional Education District Study Final Report identified 11 areas where our community and learners would benefit from the merger. This is referred to as the "promise of merger."
EWSD has made good progress, but all that merger means in our community is yet to be fully realized.
