As instruments of the Massachusetts Legislature, local School Committees function primarily as a legislative body to formulate and adopt policy, by selecting an executive officer to implement policy, and by evaluating the results. They must carry out their functions openly, while seeking comments of the public, students and staff in its decision-making processes.
The Springfield School Committee consists of the Mayor, who is chairman; two members who are elected at-large; and four members who are elected by ward representation. The School Committee operates in accordance with the MGL Ch. 71 and 41, which delegate its authority.
Honorable Mayor Domenic Sarno
Atty. Peter Murphy
