Landon: New Administrators, Teachers and Initiatives for 2014-15

By James Lomuscio

Six new administrators promoted from within school ranks, 20 new teachers to replace longtime ones who retired, more uniform start times, and program and curriculum initiatives that include college math and ethics will mark the 2014-15 academic year as classes begin Aug. 25, Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon said today.

Landon added that enrollment remains stable with about 5,700 students system wide, and that student population increases as grades rise, a fact he attributed to parents becoming more well heeled to afford moving to town as their children grow. Population at Staples High School, he said, has shown a steady increase, currently at 1,854.

“My feeling is that with kind of publicity this town gets, there are few places that match it,” Landon said. “It’s a place where people want to raise their kids and have a good life. I can only see a boom.”

He said the school system is seeing enrollment rise with grade levels, “350 kids in kindergarten, 380 in first grade, and then it moves up to 469 in the sixth grade.”
