School Committee on stage

The Agawam School Committee believes that innovation and change in education both content and methods are necessary for meeting the needs of our youth as they face life before them.

We also believe that education is best achieved when students become involved in experiences meaningful to their lives in today’s world. We believe that the educational process should develop a feeling of self-worth and accomplishment.

We believe that equal educational opportunity is the right of all children without regard to race, creed, color, or national origin and that all laws to this end should be followed promptly and effectively.

We further believe education should develop habits, attitudes, understanding, and skills necessary for a productive, satisfying life in civilized society. Each child should be helped to understand the duties and privileges of responsible citizenship as they relate to him or her as an individual and to the world community. We recognize that vast changes brought by increasing technology, population and urbanization. We request the advice and support of the citizens of the community and especially the professional staff as we endeavor to develop the attitudes and abilities of our youth.
