District Parent Council

Every month, a group of parents on the District Parent Council, meet with Superintendent Maureen Greulich and Reina Rago, Communications Coordinator, to discuss District goals and school initiatives. This group of dedicated parents share valuable ideas in order to strengthen the school-family connection.
Proudly holding the high school's panther mascot, the Council members represent all of Marlborough's schools providing the District a broad perspective of community concerns as well as opportunities.  

To help members gain a better understanding of Marlborough's programs/curriculum and goals, monthly speakers are invited to address the group.  This year thus far, Mayor Arthur G. Vigeant, Sharon Buckely, Director of Guidance and Mentor Coordinator, Tom Plati, Director of Instructional Technology, and Jonathan Rosenthal, K-12 Music Coordinator, have met with the Council.  The District greatly appreciates the time an commitment of the DPC members.
