OVERVIEW

The purpose of the School Governance Council is to provide parents, school staff, and community members with a leadership role in the management of the school. The School Governance Council is a governing body that is representative of the community and the school, but operates under the control and management of the Board of Education. The Council is responsible for making decisions regarding the strategic direction of the school including:

a.) Approve the school strategic plan and updates
b.) Approve the annual budget recommendations and resource allocations
c.) Manage Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance
 f.) Interface with the schools' Title I Committee


We are very excited about our transition into the charter system and the exciting opportunities that this endeavor will create for our students. In the meantime, if you would like more information about the charter system or to learn about the experiences of Cohort 1 schools,

 ______________________________________________________________________________

School Governance Councils (SGC) play a critical role in the success of the 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, SGCs have 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

 

Current SGCs have been an invaluable resource.  They have proposed new and creative approaches to meet the needs of students at their schools and have been instrumental in securing approximately $8.7 million of Seed Fund money, over the last two years, to support those new approaches.

We are very excited about the work and value-add of our SGCs.  We hope that you will consider running for a position and voting in the SGC elections in March.  In the meantime, to get more information about the charter system or SGC elections visit the district charter system website at http://www.fultonschools.org/en/about/charter or contact the Governance & Flexibility Team at 470-254-3604.
