About the 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, State Law Chapter 71, the School Committee is the policy setting entity for the public schools.  It also appoints the Superintendent, 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 School Committee has full control over how that money is spent. By law the School Committee holds a public hearing before approving its budget.

TV coverage of past Belmont School Committee meetings is provided by the Belmont Media Center: Watch School Committee Meetings
