Charter System Presentation
Medlock Bridge is transitioning into the Fulton Charter System this year as a Cohort 2 school. Our school will now have a School Governance Council that will have a leadership role in the governance of the school. School Governance Councils work 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. The SGC is comprised of a mix of stakeholders from both the school and community:
- 3 parents (elected by parents/guardians)
- 2 community members (nominated by principal; approved by rest of Council)
- 2 teachers (elected by school employees)
- 2 school employees (appointed by principal)
- Principal (non-voting member)
- 2 students (non-voting member; high school only)
The purpose of the School Governance 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 vacancy)
e) Provide annual feedback on principal performance
