Community Survey

The Westerly School Committee would like to hear from you. Please take your time to answer the following questions as part of our Legacy Planning Process. Your thoughtful responses are very important to the success of the process and will help inform other research being performed – including focus groups that will be held in the next few months. Even if you have not been involved with the schools lately, we want to hear your general impressions of what may be needed to maintain and enhance the quality and competitiveness of our schools. If you don’t feel comfortable answering a question, feel free to leave it blank. This survey is anonymous, but the aggregate results will be shared at some future date. Thank you for your assistance with this.
