The School Committee is pleased to offer Office Hours virtually, once a month during the school year.  Office Hours provide the community an opportunity for engagement with one or two members of the Committee.  Future dates for the 2024-25 school year will be established and posted in late summer. Please check back to this page for opportunities beginning in September.

Community members who wish to engage with the Committee but cannot attend office hours are encouraged to participate in Public Comment at a future meeting, or email the Committee and the Superintendent at school_committee@wellesleyps.org.

Members also participate in monthly Central Council meetings to discuss relevant issues.
