Much like “office hours,” these events allow for a more interactive dialogue than what is allowed at business meetings. These meetings have no set agenda, are attended by only two members of the Committee (as to stay below quorum and, therefore, avoid deliberation), and are typically held on the top floor of Memorial Hall Library. All members of the Andover community are welcome and encourage to attend to discuss any item under the purview of the School Committee.
Informal forums typically take place monthly during the school year and are offered at various times (weekend mornings, weekday mornings, and weeknights). We hope to see you if you have an issue you'd like to discuss.
