Welcome to the
Harvard School Committee Website
Harvard's school committee is comprised of five elected members
serving three year terms, as well as a member appointed by the Devens
Educational Advisory Committee in compliance with our Devens contract.
The primary responsibilities of the school committee are to set policies
and goals for the district, appoint and evaluate the superintendent,
and adopt and oversee Harvard's school budget.
The goal of the school committee is to fulfill the vision of the
district to provide an environment where each student is known and
respected and where each student's potential is developed. To that end,
the school committee works to ensure the allocation of adequate
resources and proper management so that the school district continues to
reflect the standards and expectations of the Harvard community.
School Committee meetings take place on the second and fourth Monday
evenings of the month in the Town Hall meeting room and are televised on
Harvard's local cable access channel (click here for a schedule of events).
Meeting schedules and agendas are available on the town of Harvard's
website at least 48 hours in advance. Meetings are open to all and
public input is welcomed at each meeting during a commentary period
scheduled towards the beginning of the meeting.
