Overview

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

a.) Approve the school strategic plan and updates​
b.) Approve the annual budget recommendations and resource allocations
c.) Manage Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of vacancy)
e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance

Cambridge High School Governance Council Information

 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 designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. Our Council worked diligently to draw up a Strategic Plan that has the following long term outcomes:

 1. Enhance individualized learning opportunities for students

 2. Improve students' life skills for success in college and careers

3. Increase students' overall wellness and resiliency for improved social and academic success

Cambridge High School's Governance Council worked to gain approval for two Requests For Flexibility(RFF's) that will directly benefit the School's Strategic Initiatives and short term goals. These RFF's are effective starting 2015-16 school year. The first RFF is for the Personal Fitness Waiver for students who successfully participate in a GHSA-sanctioned sport (one full season for varsity athletes or two full seasons for sub-varsity sports) or one season of marching band. Please click here for more information regarding the Personal Fitness waiver. The second one allows the school to have one early release day on PSAT day and two full professional days in the 2015-16 school year and is carried forward to the 2016-17 school year adding 2 more days. This will give the faculty one day a month for professional learning making it an ongoing process.  For the 2016-17 school year, we were granted seed funds for flexible spacing to embrace personalized learning for our students.

For the 2017-18 school year,  our approved Early Release Day is October 11 and our Full Release Days  are October 5 and March 8. Our other request for flexibility was approved. GROWL (Growing Relevant Opportunities through Wednesday Learning) allows ninth graders individualized learning to support their transition to high school. It allows our 10th-12th grade sturdents the opportunity to arrive at 10:50 on 8 Wednesdays a semester. In addition to student opportunities, it allows teachers time to collaborate and improve skills on personalizing instruction. For more information on this program, please refer to the student tab on the home page.
