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 and annual resource allocations
c) Manage the Request for Flexibility process
d) Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
e) Provide annual feedback on principal performance
Findley Oaks will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. We will be electing ONE parent/guardian position for our spring election. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school’s strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held March 19th-March 23rd. Click here for more information about School Governance Council elections.
