SGC 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:

            • Approve the school strategic plan and updates 

            • Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations

            • Interface with the schools' Title I Committee

            • Manage the Request for Flexibility process

            • Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)

            • Provide annual feedback on principal performance.


The SGC is made up of 3 parents/guardians (elected), 2 teachers (elected), 2 school-based employees (appointed), and 2 community members (appointed).


Strategic Plan
Our SGC worked with the leadership team to create and approve the Strategic Plan, which includes initiatives in student achievement, people and culture, community collaboration, and fiscal responsibility.
