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
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.”

North Springs Strategic Plan

One of the North Springs Governance Council’s main responsibilities is to update and approve the school’s strategic plan beginning with 2018-19 school year 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. After working for much of the 2017-18 school year, our new strategic plan for 2018-2022 has been approved. Here is a link to the plan.
