The School Committee is reinstating the practice from last year of holding "office hours" once a month.
The purpose of these meetings is to listen to community members' questions, suggestions, and concerns. "Drop-ins" are welcome during the usually 1-1/2-hour meetings, or participants can attend for the entire time.
These informal meetings involve a couple of committee members at a time, taking turns. While they may not be able to answer every question, member Tim Miller-Dempsey said recently, any that remain unanswered will be brought to the attention of the committee to be addressed.
Whether a meeting will be held remotely or in-person will be determined on a month-by-month basis.
Information about the meetings will be broadly shared so the community is aware of when they are happening.
