The Danvers Public Schools are making great strides toward fulfilling our vision and mission to be a dynamic community of independent learners dedicated to respect, responsibility, creativity, and the pursuit of academic and personal excellence.
As Danvers' chief elected officials, we take our roles a stewards of the public trust and tax dollars very seriously. As such, we work with staff, volunteers, and a myriad of stakeholders to ensure that the service needs of residents and businesses are balanced carefully against the willingness and ability of taxpayers (including those same residents and businesses) to support those services - now and in the future.
