School Committee Public Hearing and Meeting
The School Committee holds its annual public hearing on School Choice. Every year they must decide by June 1 if Hopkinton will accept school choice students the following year. We have NOT accepted school choice students for several years, however Hopkinton students may still go out of district to other towns that accept school choice students. This year 15.5 students attend out of Hopkinton via School Choice and 34 students attend public charter schools out of Hopkinton.
