About Your School Committee

We believe that exceptional school districts develop exceptional students. We are proud of our district’s tradition of excellence, yet our focus remains on our journey of continuous improvement as we strive to empower all students to excel.

The Barrington School Committee is composed of five members of the community who are elected at large to four-year terms. Terms are staggered to provide continuity in public service and a maximum of three new members are elected at one time. We are proud to have a Student Representative to the School Committee, who reflects the opinions and concerns of students. The Student Representative to the School Committee serves in a nonvoting advisory capacity.

We welcome your presence at our School Committee meetings. School Committee meetings are open to the public and are typically scheduled on the first and third Thursday of every month during the academic year and as needed during the summer. At all regularly scheduled meetings, the open meeting convenes at 7:00 pm in the School Committee Room of the School Administration Office at Government Center, 283 County Road, Barrington.

School Committee meetings are available on the district website (
www.barringtonschools.org) via livestream as well as archived meetings.

In order to ensure compliance with the Open Meetings Act, notice of all School Committee meetings is electronically filed with the Secretary of State, posted on the district website (
www.barringtonschools.org.) and posted in two (2) public locations within the governmental unit at least forty-eight (48) hours in advance of the meeting.

We appreciate your interest in the Barrington Public Schools.
