Our Board of Trustees

The Greater Commonwealth Virtual School is governed by a board of trustees appointed by the state’s education commissioner. The board provides oversight to the school, similar to a school committee or school board. The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education authorizes the school.

Mission Statement

The Greater Commonwealth Virtual School, a public school of choice, serves students from across Massachusetts who need a learning community that is accessible, flexible, and inclusive. As a pioneer of online learning, we empower our educators to tailor learning experiences to each student’s strengths, interests, and challenges. We redefine and change how students and teachers engage through innovative technology while ensuring mastery of competencies embedded in a rigorous curriculum.

Board Meetings

The board of trustees meets monthly, typically on the second Monday of the month, though the schedule is subject to change. We also schedule additional meetings when necessary.

Our meetings are open to the public and in compliance with the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law.

The board of trustees will follow the standard practice of meeting on the second Monday of the month. Meetings may be rescheduled or other meetings added if necessary, throughout the year.
