Board Committees

The Board of Education values input and participation by members of the school community and has established board committees.

These committees are chaired by a member or members of the Board of Education. These committees are not empowered to act beyond reporting to the Board of Education. The committees meet at the discretion of the chairperson.

If you are interested in serving on a committee, please email the District Clerk at murrays@esmonline.org with your name, contact information and what committee you are interested in serving on.
