Education Committee Mission Statement

The Education Committee of the Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations (COBWRA) strives to support educational opportunities for all students in pre-K through 12 public schools from COBWRA communities and to increase lifelong learning for residents by establishing cooperative community relationships. The committee makes informed recommendations to COBWRA regarding policies and legislation that affect public education.

Vision Statement

As COBWRA’s community advocate, the Education Committee focuses on quality curricula, effective teaching, positive student learning outcomes and lifelong learning.


  • Continue working closely with Government Affairs and the School District to recommend legislative actions to COBWRA’s Ex. Board that affect public education, for example (HR 7069).
  • Continue visiting local schools and Box Tops donations to increase community relations with principals, teachers and staff.
  • Continue scheduling guest speakers to keep the Education Committee well informed of educational trends and important issues.
  • Improve the Education Committee’s website by implementing the recommendations proposed by the Website Sub-committee, for example (Add five-year trends of enrollments and school grades earned by all Elementary, Middle and High Schools located within COBWRA boundaries).
