School Committee Forum

Do you know what the School Committee does?
It is a crucial, elected group of dedicated town citizens who provide the link between the community and its residents.
Watch our Forum with members of the Plymouth School Committee as they answer questions about their work, the importance to citizens with and without school-age children, the budget process, and how to engage with them to have an impact on the Town of Plymouth.
There will be seats up for election this coming Spring, if you are interested go to https://www.plymouth.k12.ma.us/page/school-committee to learn more.
