April 30, 2024 – The Wellesley School Committee is seeking applications for an interim Committee member. The current Vice Chair, Catherine Mirick, announced last week that she is resigning at the end of May, as her family will be relocating out of town.

Per MGL c. 41, § 11, the School Committee and Select Board are seeking a resident to fill the open position until the next Town election in March 2025. At that time, an election will be held for the final year of Ms. Mirick’s term, which expires in 2026.

Interested candidates are invited to apply by sending their resume and a brief statement of interest to School_Committee@wellesleyps.org by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14. Applicants must be a registered voter in Wellesley.

The Committee anticipates interviewing applicants during a special meeting on Monday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m., which will be available for the public to watch live. Each candidate will have three minutes to share their interest in the role. The Committee plans to recommend a candidate that evening and submit the applicant’s name and information to the Select Board. The two boards are scheduled to hold a joint meeting to approve the appointment on Monday, June 3 at 6:30 p.m

The School Committee is a 5-member legislative body of residents who serve three-year terms. The Committee’s responsibilities include developing and managing school policies, overseeing budget and facilities, hiring and reviewing the superintendent of schools, and serving as an advocate for students and the school district.

The appointment will be a seat on the School Committee only; any Committee assignments for the new member will be determined at a later date. Interested parties may reach out to the Committee at the above email address with any questions.
