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.) Approving the school strategic plan and updates (see below and right for link to new draft submitted 12/18/17)
b.) Approving the annual budget recommendations and resource allocations
c.) Managing the Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
e.) Providing annual feedback on principal performance

Planning and Preparing for the future

“In early 2017, Fulton County Schools (FCS) began work on a new strategic plan, which will be rolled out at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. Our district's plan will serve as a guide and a focus for our work as a district and community for the next five years. It will help ensure that all stakeholders in the community – from the School Board, to staff, to principals, to teachers, to students, parents and community members – are working toward a shared set of goals and priorities.”

Read the Strategic Plan here: FCS Strategic Plan 2022

North Springs Strategic Plan

One of the North Springs Governance Council’s main responsibilities is to update and approve the school’s 2015-2018 strategic plan to align with the district’s  2022 Strategic plan and district-wide  goal of preparing all students to graduate ready to pursue and succeed on their chosen paths. We have been working on the components of our new school plan and submitted a draft to the district on December 18, 2017.  Here is the link; we will be asking for feedback from parents and our community stakeholders next.  We encourage you to attend our open SGC meetings and or volunteer to serve on a committee to be even more involved. Please contact chair Miriam Salpeter at salpeterm@fultonschools.org if you would like more information.
