About School Committee

The Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee is elected by the voters to oversee the education of the children of Acton and Boxborough. Typically, the committee meets once a month on Thursdays to review programs and procedures, establish goals for the school system, and develop and monitor the budget. Community members are encouraged to attend our meetings or watch the proceedings live on cable-channel 99 (Comcast) and 41 (Verizon). Acton TV now offers an on-demand online service that streams all school committee meetings.  You can watch live meetings here.  We hope that you will become more knowledgeable about the critical issues that we all face together as the communities of Acton and Boxborough and become actively involved in supporting our public schools.

Please send any or all members of the committee an email expressing your views on any of the issues before the committee and the community. If you are interested in sending an email to all the members of the Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee, please use the following email address: abrsc@abschools.org. The Superintendent will also receive any emails sent to these addresses. Email messages sent to School Committee members become part of the public record per MGL: Chpt.66, Sec.10 Public Records Law. Typically, email messages are posted online with School Committee meeting materials including the author's name and town, unless otherwise requested.
