Our school district is experiencing tremendous enrollment growth. We are a popular school district with lots of housing growth; with that growth comes families with children. Over the next ten years PLSAS is expecting an additional 2,185 students spread across all grade levels (2017/18 – 2026/27). Long-term facilities planning is underway, with the district's Facilities Task Force meeting to study enrollment and demographic data. The Task Force will identify needs, generate ideas and provide input to a Facilities Design. There will be opportunities for the public to review options and provide input before Board action this spring. More information.
Our mission at WestWood is to partner with our families to be a child-centered community where dreams are nurtured and needs are met by providing opportunities for all children to be successful. At WestWood, you will find a caring and supportive staff that are encouraging to children, families and each other.
