Board Committees

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

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. All committee meetings are held in the Board Room at the Junior-Senior High School.
