Boston School Committee members are appointed to serve four-year staggered terms. When vacancies exist, the Mayor appoints members from a list of candidates recommended by a 13-member Citizens Nominating Panel, composed of parents, teachers, principals, and representatives of the business and higher education communities. Under the legislation that established the appointed School Committee, “the Mayor shall strive to appoint individuals who reflect the racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the city.”
Anyone interested in applying for the remainder of the term of Margaret McKenna and one of the four-year terms must submit an application by Monday, October 20 at 3 p.m. Those only interested in applying for one of the four-year terms must submit by Friday, November 7 at 3 p.m.
