THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE
The Education Act of 1993 outlines three key responsibilities for Massachusetts School Committees: establish educational goals and policies for the district, oversee the school district budget, and hire and evaluate the superintendent of schools. While the School Committee's work is big picture -- setting goals, vision, and policies -- the superintendent oversees personnel, including: hiring and evaluation of staff, day-to-day operations, and the development of procedures and protocols to implement policy.
The School Committee works with the Superintendent; the Superintendent works with the staff. The School Committee is concerned with the end results; the Superintendent is in charge of the methods to achieve the end results. The School Committee monitors progress toward goals; the Superintendent reports on progress for the School Committee. Both the Superintendent and School Committee advocate on behalf of the Ludlow Public Schools.
School Committee Meetings
All School Committee meetings will be held at the Harris Brook Elementary School Library unless otherwise specified. Please find the Meeting Schedule HERE. For additional information, please contact our District Office at (413) 583-8372.
