The purpose of the School Governance Council is to provide parents, school staff, and community members with a leadership role in 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:

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)

Strategic Plan Overview
Strategic Plan Narrative
Attention Parents and Guardians!
Fulton County schools became a charter system in 2012. This means that the district receives a waiver from state education laws in exchange for increased accountability and autonomy at the school level. As a charter system, every school in Fulton County now has a School Governance Council comprised of parents, teachers, school employees, and community members. The SGC plays a critical role in the success of each school, working with the school community to design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement that meet the unique needs of the school community.
