SGC ELECTION INFORMATION: Centennial High School 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 and developed a Request for Flexibility (RFF) plan that will allow Centennial students earn an elective credit for virtual learning study skills they are acquiring while enrolled in a credit recovery online course at school. The School Governance Council also submitted a Seed Fund proposal and was awarded $112,000 to expand two traditional computer labs into collaboration labs. These spaces will give our students even more exciting and forward-looking learning opportunities by providing them with collaborative furniture, software, and technology that will challenge both our students and teachers to explore new options for education.
In 2014 the SGC developed an RFF that allowed Personal Fitness credit to be given to students who had fulfilled requirements through the sports and ROTC programs. The Council also helped Centennial receive $197,000 from the Seed Fund grant to transform the media center into a new learning space. The "Learning Commons" is now being used as a model for all other Fulton County High Schools.
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 to the district office by April 28th!
