Education Committee


The COBWRA Education Committee strives to support pre-K–12 public schools and increase community education/lifelong learning opportunities in West Boynton Beach by establishing cooperative relationships that include, but are not limited to, the School District of Palm Beach County, its board members, and county leaders and state legislators. The committee also evaluates and makes informed recommendations to COBWRA about policies and legislation that affect public education. COBWRA invites member residents to join its education committee, which is comprised of a group of educators, parents, and other stakeholders who wish to support quality public education in West Boynton. Since a rich selection of high quality, well established public and private educational institutions, and recreational and cultural organizations, operate within Palm Beach County, the following web links provide COBWRA communities with a list of third parties that offer a wide range of local activities and programs available to residents of West Boynton.
