About Weston METCO

Since 1967, Weston has participated in METCO, (Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity), a voluntary, desegregation, program which brings approximately 167 students, grades K-12, from Boston to Weston’s schools.

The Weston METCO program is enjoying another productive and exciting year. Our students are working hard to achieve the academic goals that parents and the program have developed for them. Our METCO Academic Liaisons are working with our Boston students supporting them in their pursuit of academic success.

Elementary students in Kindergarten through grade three are working under the guidance of Riola Lazo, METCO Liaison (Country and Woodland Schools). At Field School, METCO Elementary Liaison, Theresa Dryden, is working with our fourth and fifth grade students. Cyril Kakulu is the METCO Liaison at the Middle School, and he works with our sixth, seventh and eighth graders. La Toya Rivers, the METCO Director and High School Liaison works with students in grades nine through twelve.

The Boston Weston METCO Parent Organization (BWMPO), the Family Friends program, and the Community Coordinating Committee (CCC) are examples of the diverse groups of students, parents, teachers, administrators and members of the Boston and Weston communities who are working together to make our METCO program the best ever!

We have many events throughout the year where we bring the Boston and Weston communities together.  Some of these events include the Family Friends Ice Cream Social in September (this year at the Country School, the METCO Gospel Jubilee In January at the Weston High School and the Annual Pot Luck Supper in March in Weston.  Everyone from both the Weston and Boston communities are welcome to attend these events.
We also conduct fundraisers to help support our programs.   Click on the Forms and Publications tab at the left to obtain further information on these fundraisers.  To learn more about the program’s achievements, please read the most recent annual report to the School Committee.
