a)  Approve the school Strategic plan and updates
b)  Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations
c)  Manage the Request for Flexibility process
d)  Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)

Request for Flexibility Waiver

 

To further develop students' critical thinking skills and academic achievement, the Council requested a waiver to add up to two additional teacher professional development days to the school calendar. This will allow teachers to engage in effective learning in critical areas of the curriculum, including project-based learning.  This waiver was approved by the county in 2015-2016 and will be in effect for the next three school years.
