School Governance Council
We have a parent position available on our School Governance Council (SGC). The School Governance Council meets one time a month to oversee the big picture for the school which includes, culture, identity and mission; strategic planning; budget as it applies to strategy; requests for flexibility; and feedback on principal's performance as a school leader. This individual would fill the current vacancy and finish out the two year term. If you would be interested in joining the School Governance Council, or would like more details, please email Christine Lemerond at Lemerond@fultonschools.org.

2017-2018 School Year Calendar
We are so excited for another great year to begin! Please click here to review the 2017-2018 school calendar for Shakerag Elementary. Our
school calendar is slightly different from the original Fulton County school
calendar. Our students will also be out on September 5, November 27,
February 20 and March 30 so our teachers can engage in additional
professional development opportunities.
Shakerag Volunteer Registration
To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2017-2018 school year, we will require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District to re-register/register (even if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration/application process. The registration process can be found on the FCS District Website under Community/Partners & Volunteers or Click Here. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or "goes by" names on the application). All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.
As part of our move towards Personalized Learning, we will be teaching all our students how to use the Internet safely, ethically, and responsibly. Visit Common Sense Media for tools that you can use at home to further support these goals.
Shakerag is part of Fulton County's first group of schools working towards the goal of Personalized Learning for our students. We are excited to begin the work of transforming education to help challenge and engage students for the 21st century.
Below is a quick look at our past, present and future learning.
