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.

I apologize for not keeping this site as current as it used to be, but for the most part I've moved to posting most school news through our Twitter feed. Please follow that for the latest Beverly school news. When there is important or breaking news, I'll still try to post here, and will also try to keep the curated links to the right relatively current. Also, if there are any parents who follow school news closely and want to take over and re-energize this site, please contact John.
