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 the Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance

Formulating the Strategic Plan for 2015-2018

The School Governance Council (SGC) is responsible for developing the strategic plan for NSCHS to present to the superintendent's office by August 14, 2015. The SGC is following the strategic planning metrics for Cohort 3. The council has reviewed data from all stake holders and met on April 15, 2015 to identify 4 broad, long-term outcomes the strategic plan will address. The council met throughout the summer to develop focus areas, short term goals and strategic initiatives to support the goals and objectives. The SGC will present an overview of the  strategic plan to all interested stake holders- parents, teachers, students and community members on Thursday, August 6th @ 6:30pm in the media center.

Long Term Objectives:

  • Students become engaged citizens who demonstrate respect and contribute to the public good in a supportive learning environment.
  • Increase students' college and career readiness
  • Students will demonstrate an increased use of critical thinking skills across all content areas
  • Increase the graduation rate for all students

Additionally the council unanimously passed early release days for next year and identified the 2 leadership positions for student representatives for SGC: SGA - Student Government Association President and FBLA - Future Business Leaders of America President
