Welcome To William D. Ford Career-Technical Center

A Message from the Director...

Hello Ford Students and Families!

I cannot express how proud I am of the accomplishments achieved over the past month. From earning credentials to completing a house, finalizing movies, extricating a vehicle, hosting over 700 people at an event, and much more, the list goes on and on. Ford Tech exemplifies what high-level education and learning look like. Not only are the students beaming with pride, but so are the staff and families. I am truly honored to witness the immense growth that has occurred over the past year. I look forward to hearing the many success stories our students will encounter as they progress through their lives.

Dear Wayne-Westland Families,

Following a closed session last evening, the Wayne-Westland Community Schools Board of Education voted to place Superintendent John Dignan on administrative leave pending the outcome of further discussions. 

The Board has named Ms. Jennifer Curry, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, as the Acting Superintendent. The District’s leadership team will continue to work with the faculty and staff to ensure the positive completion of the school year for all our students, while remaining focused on the strategic priorities of our school district. 

Sincerely, 

Bradley Gray
Board President
