Through school, family, and community partnerships,
we provide an education that inspires life-long learners
and cultivates caring and productive citizens of our ever-changing world.
The school committee believes that the public schools belong to the people who created them by consent and support them by taxation, and the support of the people must be based on their understanding of and their participation in the aims and efforts of the schools. Therefore, the Committee declares its intent:
1. To keep local citizens informed through available channels of communication on the policies, programs, problems, and planning of the school system, and to carry out this policy through its own efforts, those of the superintendent, and such others as may be appointed.
2. To solicit the studied counsel of the people through advisory committees selected from the community and appointed to consider problems that vitally affect the future of our children.
