School Committee

The School Committees are elected bodies which represent the entire community. They establish educational goals and policy for the operation of the school systems. During public meetings, the School Committees reach decisions by majority vote. In addition, the School Committees review and approve budgets. They also select, appoint, and evaluate the Superintendent of Schools. 

There are three different school committees connected to the Amherst-Pelham school system. The Amherst School Committee is concerned with the three elementary schools in the town of Amherst. The Pelham School Committee supervises Pelham Elementary School. The Regional School Committee oversees management of Amherst Regional Middle School and Amherst Regional High School, which serve students in the towns of Amherst, Pelham, Leverett and Shutesbury. The Regional School Committee includes representatives from each of the four towns.
