SBCE will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. We will be electing two parent/guardian positions and one teacher position for our spring election. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting 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 designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held March 17th – March 24th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by February 26th.
