About School Committee

The Belmont School Committee is an unpaid six-member board elected to three-year terms at Belmont's annual Town Election.  Terms overlap so two members are elected per year. By state law (chap 71, www.mass.gov/legis/laws/mgl/gl-71-toc.htm ), the School Committee is the policy setting entity for the public schools.  It also appoints the superintendent and approves several other key positions, approves the budget, and negotiates with school unions.

The Warrant Committee recommends and, ultimately, Town Meeting appropriates a yearly budget for the school system as a single line item.  The SC has full control over how that money is spent. By law the SC holds a public hearing before approving its budget.
