MTRSD School Committee

It is the mission of the Mohawk Trail Regional School District (MTRSD) School Committee to provide District students with the tools to achieve academic excellence, the curiosity to sustain lifelong learning and the critical thinking essential to becoming active, engaged citizens. The School Committee will be a fiscally responsible advocate for our schools, working collaboratively with one another and with our member towns. The School committee will conduct its activities openly, encouraging the participation of educators, administrators, local officials, parents, students and citizens.

MTRSD is made up of two representatives from each of the eight member towns: Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Hawley, Heath, Plainfield and Shelburne.

There are a total of 100 weighted points on the School Committee and Hawley accounts for 3.2 of those 100 points because of our relative size.

MTRSD full School Committee meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month, at 7 pm, usually at Mohawk. Mohawk has a number of subcommittees and members are required to participate on two committees, usually of their choosing. Subcommittees meet monthly, or more often as needed.

The subcommittees are: Budget, Education, Personnel, Policy, 3-District Transportation, Building, and Nilman Scholarship.
