School Committee Priorities 2023-2024

On September 14, 2023, the Yarmouth School Committee unanimously adopted the following priorities for the academic year.

Priority 1:        School Culture and Climate

a.               Continue to support the work of district staff in ensuring authentic practices and policies are in place to provide high-quality academic, personal wellness, and extra-curricular programming with equity of access for all students.

b.                       Work with the District Leadership Team to evaluate accessibility of existing programs and ensure equitable access for all students. Consider transition of Equity Task Force to a School Committee subcommittee (possibly labeled the “Mission Committee”) to ensure a more global perspective and encourage implementation of practices and programs that promote our core values for all students.

c.                        Provide the resources necessary for completion of the Equity Audit, hear a report of the auditing firm, and supporting the District Leadership Team as they develop and implement plans in response to recommendations.

 Priority 2:        Programming

a.               Consider Program Review items proposed by the DLT and from within the School Committee to ensure continual improvement remains in focus.

b.              Support the District Leadership Team as they operationalize Year Two of the Strategic Plan.

 Priority 3:        Resources

a.               Review the District’s financial commitment to specific academic and extra-curricular programs, the impact of those programs on student experiences, and the level of support required of the community, families, and students for such programs to thrive.

b.              Negotiate a fair successor collective bargaining agreement with the Yarmouth Education Association, Ed Tech unit.
