Employee Trainings

  • checklist Essex Westford School District contracts with SafeSchools, an award-winning, third-party provider of nationally recognized safety and compliance training programs, to ensure EWSD staff are prepared for the challenges of working in a school district.

    The tool has been proven to increase awareness of district policies and practices, reduce workplace injuries, and interrupt the negative effects of bullying, harassment, and discrimination. The required courses also help all of our staff support students in our school buildings and spaces. If you have questions, contact Human Resources at (802) 857-7038.
