​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 and annual resource allocations 

c.) Manage the Request for Flexibility process 

 d.) Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy) 

 e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance.

Strategic Plan developed by 2017-18 Governance Council
Earlier this year, Fulton County Schools rolled out their Strategic Plan 2022. Centered around four primary focus areas, the plan is a guide for the district and the community as they work together to prepare all students to graduate ready to pursue and succeed in their chosen paths. The four pillars are:  student achievement, people and culture, community collaboration, and fiscal responsibility.  Learn more about the Fulton County Schools Strategic Plan (link)

The Riverwood Strategic Plan supports the four focus areas identified by the school district and will serve as a framework for the Governance Council and the school over the next five years:
