Your voice is important to us.

An Act relative to extending certain COVID-19 measures adopted during the state of emergency was signed by Governor Healey and allows for remote meetings and hearings by public bodies through March 31, 2025, which allows the Haverhill School Committee  to hold hybrid meetings. The following provisions have been implemented to ensure public participation in its meetings:  in order to register to participate in remote public comment only during the school committee meeting, please register here at least 6 hours prior to the meeting: Public Comment Registration Link.  A link to the public comment session of the meeting will be emailed to you at the address you supply at least two hours before the meeting.

The meetings of the Haverhill School Committee will be held in-person at the location provided on this notice. Members of the public are welcome to attend this in-person meeting. Please note that while an option for remote attendance and/or participation is being provided as a courtesy to the public, the meeting will not be suspended or terminated if technological problems interrupt the virtual broadcast, unless otherwise required by law. Members of the public with a particular interest in any specific agenda items should make plans for in-person vs. virtual attendance accordingly.

Regular meetings are usually held on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m.  During the months of  February, July, November and December the committee meets only once.
