School Governance Council Elections - Hopewell Middle School will be electing new representatives to serve on our inaugural School Governance Council (SGC). There are three parent/guardian positions and two teacher positions open for election this fall. 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 designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held November 12th- 18th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form (interactive) and submit to the district office by October 15th! Candidate declaration forms can be submitted electronically or by mail to the district office. Hard copies of the candidate declaration forms are located in the front office.
To declare your candidacy for a position on the School Governance Council or to learn more information about Charter System and SGCs, please access the SGC Elections webpage. You may also attend a SGC information session to learn more about the Council.

Redistricting Information - Three community meetings are set for October 8, November 5, and December 10 to address the redistricting process for two new schools in Roswell as well as classroom additions at three North Fulton middle schools. Each time a redistricting effort is under way, the school system holds three rounds of meetings to gather information needed to draft a redistricting proposal that best meets the community's needs. Unlike other school systems, Fulton uses a process that encourages public discussion before developing a proposal. This allows the community to have maximum input in how the proposed attendance lines are created. Information
