The Westwood Family Connection provides an online student registration process which allows families to register new students. Student registration forms will be saved and can be edited until parents choose to submit the data. The new student registration information will still be available for viewing – but not editing – after it is submitted. Parent/guardian information will be automatically populated for families who have a student currently or previously enrolled in the Westwood Schools.


Step 1: Register Online


Existing families with an active Aspen Portal Account can access the Westwood Family Connection portal directly from Aspen which will not require a separate login. Go to the Westwood Aspen portal: https://ma-westwood.myfollett.com. Log into your account and click Student Registration on the right-hand side. Then, skip to Step 8 below. If you have problems accessing your account, please email WPS Aspen Support at aspen@westwood.k12.ma.us or call 781-320-1021.




Parents new to the Westwood Schools and families without an active Aspen Portal Account may use the following steps to create a new account to register students:


  1. Go to the Westwood Family Connection: https://ma-westwood.familyconn.com.
  2. Click Create Account.
  3. A window will open; enter parent/guardian first name, last name, email address, and password.
  4. Select one of the following:
    1. New families select: “I will be enrolling students in this school district for the very first time.”
    2. If you are a parent of an existing student, or a previously enrolled student in the Westwood Schools, select “I have students that were currently or were previously enrolled in the Westwood Public Schools.” Enter the following:
      1. Student first name (as it appears on the birth certificate)
      2. Student last name
      3. Student birthdate


Note that this information, as well as your email address, must match the information in the student’s Aspen account exactly. If you have any issues, please email WPS Aspen Support at aspen@westwood.k12.ma.us or call 781-320-1021.
