This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.

Contact the School Committee Now

We are reposting the addresses of the School Committee members below. All readers who are concerned about the proposal that was presented last night regarding the Hannah School, should take the time to write or call their Committee representative expressing their concerns before tomorrow night's meeting. This is true, not just for Hannah parents, but for our supporters at the other schools who realize that this is an issue that will affect all of us, as well as the city as a whole.

Also, please try to attend the Committee meeting tomorrow at 7:00 at the Memorial Building.

In the future these addresses, along with City Council addresses are always available by clicking on the link to the left under "Action Items":
