On November 19, a College Planning program for students with IEP’s and 504 plans will be held from 7:00 - 9:00 PM in Westfield High School Cafeteria B. It is being sponsored by the Westfield PTC Special Education Committee, Westfield PTC-Special Education Committee, Westfield High School Counseling Department and Special Services Department. In addition to members of the WHS Guidance Department and case managers, an independent education consultant will also be on hand for the round table discussion. A parent will convey her perspective in selecting a college for her child.   

The goal of this program is to bring together educational professionals who will discuss how to plan for college during the high school years, how to search for a college that fits the students' needs,  strategies for students and parents in the selection of a college and how to work with a college office of disabilities program.  For further information, email specialedparents@westfieldnjk12.org.

On Thursday evening, November 20, from 7 – 9 PM, Westfield High School will host more than 170 colleges and universities at its annual College Night.  This event gives students and their parents an opportunity to gather information about colleges and universities nationwide.  The college representatives will be in the High School’s Varsity Gym, Gym 5 and Cafeteria B. A list of colleges and universities that will be in attendance will be posted on the Counseling Department’s website at http://tiny.cc/whsguidance by November 10 and will be updated closer to the event.

Hosted for many years by Westfield High School’s Counseling Services Department, College Night offers a forum for students and parents to talk one-on-one with representatives from colleges and universities. The department works diligently to provide students access to an array of post-secondary options.
