Work Session: Work Sessions enable the School Committee members to have a deeper discussion of defined topics relevant to the District Strategic Goals. There is no formal action by the School Committee at a Work Session.

Listening Session: Listening Sessions that follow Work Sessions provide the School Committee with the opportunity to listen to community feedback about the topic of the Work Session.

Community Forum: Community Forums provide an opportunity for the School Committee and community to engage in discussions relative to important topics in a more informal setting.

*Executive Session: The School Committee may seek to convene in Executive Session in accordance with R.I. Gen. Laws ยง 42-46-5 (a) (1) to discuss the job performance of the Superintendent.
