In light of the November 3rd national election, which may be a long and emotional day for our nation, the Boston School Committee has made the decision to cancel its meeting scheduled for November 4th. We recognize the significance of the election day and want to ensure our students, families, staff, and community have the opportunity to fully process the day. The Committee will reconvene for its next scheduled meeting on November 18.
