Dear Town Meeting Members:
As chair of the Wellesley School Committee, I would like to share some information that you may find useful in framing the discussion of Article 44.
Academic Excellence is one of four, long-held core values of the District, along with Commitment to Community, Respect for Human Differences, and Cooperative and Caring Relationships. These Core Values are foundational to the District’s mission of providing “a high quality, comprehensive educational experience that supports each student’s academic, social, and emotional development and prepares them to be global citizens who are college, career, and life ready.” Our dedicated administrators and educators strive to deliver on this broad-based mission and to focus on every child, in every classroom, every day, even in the face of the unprecedented challenges brought about by the pandemic.

The Town of Wellesley’s new Climate Action Plan is a thoughtful roadmap for the future of our community and its residents. Launched this month after more than a year of work, the Plan outlines specific actions Wellesley will take to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change and to build resilience to climate change impacts.
The much-anticipated Climate Action Plan was developed with community-wide input and is organized along six pathways: Governance, Energy, Buildings, Mobility, Natural Resources, and Waste. Goals, strategies and actions are spelled out for each pathway. Several of the Plan’s action steps are already underway! To view the complete list of actions within each pathway, visit Climate Action Plan.
