Welcome to THE WEST HAVEN BOARD OF Education


Welcome to the West Haven Board of Education’s website. The West Haven Public School District is composed of nine schools: Alma E. Pagels Elementary School, Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School, Forest Elementary School, Savin Rock Community School, Seth G. Haley Elementary School, Washington Elementary School, Carrigan Intermediate School, Bailey Middle School and West Haven High School.

We invite you to learn more about our schools, which currently accommodate around 5,900 students, and the countless programs that help enrich each child’s education.

We are fortunate to have a school system brimming with bright and ambitious students, resourceful and innovative teachers, and staff members who work tirelessly to keep the district running. We see our teachers and staff members truly putting students first in everything they do and making strategic decisions to help our youngsters advance in their academic careers.

We are developing more opportunities for kids each year. Course selections are growing, and schools continue offering new programs that help create well-rounded and inquisitive students. Meanwhile, administrators are strengthening partnerships with outside institutions, such as the University of New Haven and Yale University, to give children a leg up in learning about career and college paths.

Teachers and staff members are recognizing their students’ strengths, while encouraging them to take on new challenges, and we’re seeing the positive effects of this approach every day.

Be sure to visit this site frequently, as events, announcements and school and district news will be updated nearly every day. To contact the district or webmaster, click here.


Announcements

  • Returning students: Please bring 2 proofs of residency to school, as per district policy. Additionally, please do not fill out the Infosnap online registration information form. You will be receiving paper copies of your information to update instead. (This includes students who are, for example, going from one of our elementary schools into the next grade at Carrigan, or who transferred from one school in our district to another one of our schools in our district because they moved across town. They are still considered returning students.) The online registration form is only for students who are completely new to the district.
  • 2016-17 Bus Routes: Bus routes are in effect on the first day and can be found by clicking here.

  • New student registration: Any new students who are not yet enrolled must register at Molloy School (they cannot register at their school building) Aug. 29-Sept. 2, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. All families must provide the required paperwork when they come for registration. Students registered on the first day of school or later will not be able to start classes that same day.
