Attending the School Committee Meeting

Why should educators attend school committee meetings?

In some systems, this is a common occurrence, and in other school systems it is a rare event.

Our teacher's union is moving towards greater attendance at school committee meetings because we care about the decisions made and topics discussed at those meetings since the school committee and educators share a common interest in doing what's right for the children and families we serve.

I believe that when all stakeholders work together to best serve students, families, and educators, it's a win-win situation and results in a school system we can all be proud of.
