There will be a "special" School Committee meeting on Monday, May 9, 2016 at 6:30p in the high school library.  This "meeting" is the opportunity for SC members to have last minute discussions with Finance Committee prior to Town Meeting.

School Committee Members
School Committee members are Holliston residents who are elected to three-year terms.  All Massachusetts School Committees have three main purviews:

  1. Hire and evaluate the Superintendent
  2. Prepare and approve a school budget, which is subject to final approval by the town
  3. Create and amend policies

Our agendas, meeting minutes, and policies are available on our web site.                      
Feel free to contact any committee member with questions or comments.
