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.  If you are interested in participating please email us at or click the Contact Us link below
