The Watertown School Committee establishes goals, policies, and the budget for the
Watertown Public Schools. The School Committee hires the Superintendent and works
closely with that individual in developing policies and practices to improve the school system.
The School Committee also is responsible for conducting collective bargaining with all employee organizations and has other responsibilities as outlined by Massachusetts General Laws.

The School Committee consists of seven members.
Six are elected on a town-wide basis for four-year terms. The Town Council President
serves as the seventh member and is elected to a two-year term. In January of each year the
School Committee elects a chair, vice-chair, and secretary from among its members.
The School Committee also organizes itself into subcommittees to conduct its business.
