School Committee Nominating Panel
The Mayor appoints new School Committee members from a list of candidates recommended by a 13-member Nominating Panel composed of parents, teachers, principals, and representatives of business and higher education.
Boston School Committee members are appointed to serve four-year staggered terms. When vacancies exist, the Mayor selects members from a list of candidates recommended by a Nominating Panel composed of parents, teachers, principals, and representatives of the business and higher education communities. Under the state 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.”
The Boston School Committee Nominating Panel is accepting applications for an open position on the Boston School Committee to fill the remainder of an unexpired term, which will expire on January 3, 2022.
