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.
