Welcome to the homepage of the Brookline School Committee (BSC). The BSC consists of 9 members who are elected town-wide to three year terms of service. Our meetings are generally held every other Thursday night during the school year, at 6:00 p.m. on the 5th floor of Town Hall. (For a full calendar of our meetings this year, please click on the “Meetings” tab.)
The main responsibilities of the BSC, as per state statute, are to evaluate the superintendent, review and approve budgets for public education in the district, and to establish educational goals and policies for the schools in the district. To read the statute, click here.
To fulfill and support these functions, BSC members serve on a variety of sub-committees and act as liaisons to many local organizations. Information about all of these can be found by using the tabs on this page.
