Exciting Opportunity to Run for Field School Council

September 30, 2020

Dear 4th Grade Field School Families,

We have a very exciting volunteer opportunity for you!! Field School currently has 1 open seat for a 2-year term on School Council.

This is an important and valuable opportunity for parents to get involved at school! Every public school in the state is required by law to have a School Council made up of various representatives, including elected parents.

According to the MA Department of Education, school councils are to assist principals in adopting educational goals for the school that are consistent with local educational policies and statewide student performance standards.  They also help in identifying the educational needs of students attending the school, reviewing the annual school building budget, and formulating a school improvement plan.

If you are interested in running for School Council, please send a candidate statement to Jennie Glass (Field School PTO Co-Chair) at jennieglass@yahoo.com by Friday, October 9th. School Council Elections will run from October 13th and close at 5pm on October 16th.

Thank you so much! We look forward to hearing from anyone interested very soon.  This is truly a great opportunity to get involved at school.

With Much Kindness,

Jennie Glass and Gillian Fachner

Field School PTO Co-Chairs
