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.

Requests for Flexibility: APPROVED
Mountain Park’s School Governance Council proposed to renew our Requests for Flexibility or RFFs for 2017-2018. The RFF proposals were public documents describing a school’s requested waiver(s) from district and/or state law or policy in order to implement a strategic effort within the school. Please see the linked slide to view the Strategic Plan Initiatives and how the proposed RFFs support that work. All of our Requests for Flexibility for 2017-2018 were approved.
