The School Committee is a 2 year unpaid elected role consisting of 7 Franklin residents that do not have an existing role within the Franklin School District.
The School Committee has the power to select and to terminate the superintendent, review and approve budgets for public education in the district, and 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 board of education.
The School Committee holds 2 public meetings a month that Franklin residents can attend in person, via Zoom (if available), and watch on Franklin TV and shown on Comcast channel 11 and Verizon channel 29. When needed, the School Committee will establish subcommittees to focus on specific topics and will conduct community outreach sessions to get the involvement of the community on decisions that impact the District.
