Services

The West40 Services team assists with compliance, licensure and background checks, helping schools to put student safety at the forefront and minimize downtime.

How we help

While other services teams see themselves as enforcers, West40 acts as your partner to keep your facilities running smoothly. From our safety checks at schools to our evaluations for educators, we pride ourselves on being flexible, forward-thinking and easy to work with.
