What is the time commitment?
The time commitment is variable, depending on what other activities the School Committee member chooses and the time of year. Preparation ahead of each meeting is necessary. Committee members also act as liaisons to District groups and serve on School Committee subcommittees (e.g. policy, budget). Members who are elected to be chair, vice-chair and secretary have additional responsibilities with time commitments. New members are required to take a 6 hour training session with the Massachusetts Association of School Committees within the first year.
