  • Monday, August 3- CCHS Parents, 1 pm
  • Monday, August 3- CCHS Student, 2 pm


  • Tuesday, August 4- Elementary Parents, 2 pm


  • Wednesday, August 5 –  CMS Parents, 7 pm

We apologize that the School Committee meeting hit capacity and not everyone was able to attend. The meeting was recorded and will be available via concordma.gov.  The slides from my presentation will be available attached to tonight’s agenda at concordps.org.


We are grateful for the extraordinary levels of engagement throughout the planning process and look forward to working together during this next phases.
