Last year, our towns appointed a Blue Ribbon Committee of citizens to review our schools. The BRC will present its findings and recommendations at a televised Joint Meeting of the Hamilton and Wenham Boards of Selectmen and the School Committee Wednesday, June 17th at 7 p.m. at Wenham Town Hall. Please join us—or watch the presentation on television—to learn about the Committee’s findings.

So what did the BRC find? Briefly, it found there are no more obvious opportunities for significant cost savings in our schools at this time. But it will recommend that the towns hire an educational expert to explore whether efficiencies can be identified in the delivery of instructional services — the only area in which we outspend our peer school districts. The committee also found that our towns’ current system of negotiating the school budget needs improvement.

Attend the meeting—or watch it on TV— to learn more.
