    Making decisions to fulfill the educational needs of children is the primary responsibility with which the citizens entrust the school committee.

    Under education reform, the school committee deliberates on a range of issues and concerns at a broad policy level, such as:

    • System-wide goals
    • Policy development
    • Hiring and evaluating the Superintendent of Schools
    • Community relations
    • Budget review and approval
    • Health and safety
    • Curriculum approval
    • Collective bargaining

    We will work to improve our instruction, leadership, operations and finance so all students are engaged in their education in a way that develops their capacity to pursue their goals and fosters life-long learning.
