SCHOOL GOVERNANCE COUNCIL ELECTIONS COMING SOON
Heards Ferry Elementary will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. There are two parent/guardian positions and one teacher position open for election this spring. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal on 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 design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. This past year, our Council worked diligently to obtain funding for the introduction of the IB program, provide time for teacher training and work with Principal Nash on budget approvals and Strategic Planning.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held May 5th – 7th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit to the district office by April 28th! Candidate forms may be submitted electronically (click appropriate link below, complete form and click "submit") or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form). For additional information on our School Governance Councils and elections, view our School Governance Council webpage.

As you should know by now, this is the last year for the current Heards Ferry Elementary building, which was built in 1970. A replacement Heards Ferry Elementary school is in the process of being built just across I-285 on Powers Ferry Road with plans to be completed in time for the 2015-16 school year.
The official Fulton County page for the school replacement project can be found here, and a copy of the presentation (including floor plans and exterior sketches) can be found here.
