Role of the School Committee

As instruments of the Massachusetts Legislature, local School Committees derive their authority from Massachusetts General Laws, from statutes and from the regulation of the State Board of Education.

The Leicester School Committee consists of five voting members elected to staggered three-year terms. The School Committee operates in accordance with the MGL Ch. 71 and 41 which delegates its authority. The Educational Reform Act of 1993, Ch. 71 S. 37 specifies this authority as follows:

The School Committee in each city and town and each regional school district shall have the power to select and to terminate the Superintendent, shall review and approve budgets for public education in the district, and shall establish educational goals and policies for the schools in the district, consistent with the requirements of law and statewide goals and standards established by the State Board of Education.

The School Committee determines overall School Department policy and budget. The School Committee conducts public meetings which are broadcast on a local TV station. The committee and Superintendent continually seek ways to obtain sufficient funding to support its programs from available sources at the local, state and federal levels.
