​​​​​​School Governance Council Candidates


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

Charter System
Now that Fulton County Schools became a Charter System in July 2012, each school has more local decision-making authority and the flexibility to im​plement strategic, personalized educational strategies that meet the needs of their students.

Each Charter System school will have a School Governance Council (SGC) that will play a critical role in its success.
