The School Committee consists of five members who are elected to overlapping three-year terms. The Committee is an independent body entrusted by law with broad powers and important duties. Following the enactment of the Educational Reform Act in 1993, which restructured and in some ways curtailed the powers of Massachusetts School Committees, the School Committee has the power to:
It is also the role of the Committee to evaluate the effectiveness of its policies and the Superintendent’s implementation of them and to serve as the employer for the district for collective bargaining purposes.
Moreover, the Committee is responsible for keeping the local citizenry informed about the schools and for keeping itself and the school staff informed about the needs and wishes of the public. In contrast to the Committee, which has budgetary, and policy-making authority, the Superintendent is charged with the day-to-day administration and oversight of the SPS.
The Committee holds public meetings two times per month during the academic year. At each meeting there is opportunity for public input. Additionally, contact can be made with the whole Committee by e-mail through the District web site. The web site also provides telephone numbers for individual Committee members. Public input is vital to the Committee as it seeks to best serve the citizens of Sudbury who support the SPS.
