Spalding Drive Charter Elementary will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. There are two parent/guardian positions and one
teacher position open for election this spring. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works 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. This past year, our Council worked diligently to create a STEM lab for all Spalding students in grades Kindergarten through five. They have also worked on a plan and received SEED Funds which will allow us to hire a STEAM Coordinator as well as provide professional development for teachers in the area of fine arts integration and meeting the instructional needs of all learners.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held May 5th – 7th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit it to the district office by Tuesday, April 28th!
Candidate forms may be submitted electronically (click appropriate link below, complete form and click "submit") or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form). For additional information on our School Governance Councils and elections, view our School Governance Council webpage or read the School Governance Council Candidate Guide below:
