Meeting Schedule

Committee Membership

The Bangor School Committee by policy, state law, and City charter are charged with the responsibility of setting policy and assuring that the School Department is well run.  The School Committee does not manage the day-to-day operations of the School Department, nor do members become individually involved in addressing parent complaints or employee issues. School Committee members’ authority is confined to when they meet as a board of the whole in public session. Therefore, they do not weigh in on policy matters as individuals, but rather as a board in public session.

Any suggestions or concerns should be discussed/addressed with the teacher of the School Department employee directly involved. Then, if necessary, you should talk with the building principal. If there still are concerns after addressing them at the school level, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 262-9125.

Members of the School Committee may be reached about policy issues at School Committee Email

Unless personally addressed, emails are received by the Office of the Superintendent of Schools and distributed to all school committee members. Solicitations, defamatory comments or vulgar language will not be accepted.
