School Governance Council - help wanted!
Looking for a way to get involved and help our school improve? Consider joining our School Governance Council (SGC). We have one parent/guardian position open for election this spring. The Council is responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, looking for innovative ways to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. This past year, our Council worked diligently to help develop our 5-year Strategic Plan, submit two Request For Flexibility proposals and four Seed Fund requests – leading to a new TAG certification program for all classroom teachers.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher position on the School Governance Council will be held May 13th – 15th. 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 25th!
