WEEFC

The Weston Education Enrichment Fund Committee (WEEFC) is a permanent sub-committee of the School Committee.  One member of the School Committee serves on the WEEFC Board.  Click here for additional information regarding WEEFC.

Administration

The School Committee hires the Superintendent to oversee the daily operations in the schools with the help of an administrative staff. In order to act on policy matters and to evaluate, in a general sense, the overall functioning of the school system, the Committee asks the administrative staff to do a variety of tasks involving data collection and analyses and to make recommendations where appropriate.

The Administrative Council consists of the Superintendent of Schools, Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations, Director of Student Services, Director of Information Technology and School Libraries, and the Principals of each of the five schools.

Student Advisory Council

In addition, Massachusetts law requires that school committees meet at least once every other month during the school year with a student advisory committee, which consists of five members elected by the high school student body.  The five members shall, by majority vote, elect from their number a chairperson who will serve for a one-year term.  That chairperson also serves as as an ex-officio, non-voting member of the school committee.  Dellena Bereket served as student member for 2020-21; the student member for 2020-2021 is Ryan Wims.  The meetings of the School Committee and Student Advisory Council (SAC) are open to the public and are generally held on the second Thursday of each month, September through May, from 8:00-8:30 AM. Email BriskyC@weston.org for meeting details.

METCO Representative

In addition to the five elected members and student,  a non-voting METCO Representative to the School Committee, is elected annually by the Boston/Weston METCO Parents Organization. Keitrice Johnson and Onika Jenkins currently share service in this role on an alternating basis.
