What is the Dunwoody Springs School Governance Council?? 

 

Have you heard of the School Governance Council and wondered what it was all about? Do you want to have your voice heard in the decision making here at DSES? Can you give yourself one 45 minute meeting a month to find out?

 

It is time for the election of new members to our School Governance Council. Parents or guardians of students who will be attending our school during both the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years are eligible for the parent/guardian SGC positions. Please click on the link below to declare your intent to run for office.

Please click here to fill out the application. Our School Governance Council (SGC) plays a critical role in the success of our school. The SGC works with school leadership and the community to help determine the long-term direction of the school, design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement, and serve as school ambassadors to the local community. Specifically, the School Governance Council has the following powers:

 

  • Approve the school strategic plan and updates

  • Manage the Request for Flexibility process

  • Manage Seed Fund requests

  • Approve the annual budget recommendations and related allocations

  • Participate in the hiring of the principal, in the case of a vacancy

  • Provide annual feedback to the Area Superintendent on principal performance

     

We are very excited about the work and value-add of our SGC. Please consider adding your name to our growing list of possible parent candidates. More information will be posted both on our school website and the Dunwoody Dispatch. Any other questions please, contact Richard DiBartolo at dibartolo@fultonschools.org.


 

Every year, the state rates schools based on several data points.  One of these data points is a survey that all staff, students, and parents complete about our school.  You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet.  If you do not have access to the Internet, you are welcome to take the survey at DSES.  We encourage all parents to take the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating.  No parent participation or low parent participation will negatively impact our school's School Climate Star Rating from the state. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Results from the survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  We greatly appreciate your time and effort!

Personalized Learning Devices

At our recent School Governance Council meeting, our SGC approved our recommendation for the Dell Latitude 11 laptop. Our Personalized Learning team, comprised of teachers several grade levels and support staff, compared each of the four available devices (click here for Device Q&A) to see which best supported our instructional model. Click here to see Dunwoody Springs' Instructional Model. 

As part of our current SPLOST and Fulton County's Personalized Learning initiative, we will be receiving 10 of these devices for every 30 students enrolled. We expect to receive these devices in the fall! This is very exciting for Dunwoody Springs and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
