Weston School Committee
The Weston School Committee is a legislative body comprised of five members elected for three-year terms at the Town Election in May, whose primary responsibility is to:
- Oversee the annual school budget
- Develop school system policies
- Hire & review the performance of the school system Superintendent
- Advocate for the school system with citizens and the Town Government
The School Committee is responsible for setting priorities (through the budget) and for establishing local policy to ensure that the schools are properly run in accordance with state law and regulations.
Budget information is available on the Finance and Operations page
The Policy Manual underwent a complete revision and was approved in its entirety in November 2011. Policies are also revised as needed. All sections of the manual are currently undergoing a complete review. To learn more, visit the School Committee’s Policy Menu page.
The School Committee meets on Monday nights approximately twice a month from September to June at 7:00 PM at Case House. Visit the Meeting Information & Procedures page for more information.
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.
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.
