Newton METCO Parent Board
The METCO Parent Board is an advisory committee for the Newton METCO parent meetings and program. There should be two parent co-chairs for the Elementary and Secondary levels. We should also have a Secretary and a Treasurer, as well as an Assistant Treasurer and Assistant Secretary. We should have a total of six members seated on the board. Each school within the Newton METCO committee's territory should have a representative on the committee chosen from among the parent members.
