Ridgeview’s Strategic Plan 2022 has been finalized and approved.

​​ ​

​Earlier this year, Fulton County Schools rolled out their Strategic Plan 2022. Centered around four primary focus areas (see figure above - click the image for full version), this plan is a guide to how the district and community will work together to prepare all students to graduate ready to pursue and succeed in their chosen paths.

Ridgeview's Strategic Plan 2022 supports the four focus areas established by 
Fulton County. Over the next five years, we will build upon our on-going commitment to student achievement; ensure a positive environment for students, staff and community; work to develop and engage effective community partnerships; promote fiscal responsibility; and focus on effective communication with all stakeholders.

As part of the Fulton County Schools' Charter System, the Ridgeview SGC is an influential governing body charged with developing and monitoring the strategic direction of Ridgeview Charter School.

The Ridgeview SGC is currently focused on supporting faculty development and parent education opportunities in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), supporting the growth of morning-time intramurals for physical activity and healthy living initiatives, and high-quality differentiated professional development opportunities for Ridgeview teachers.


The Ridgeview SGC is also responsible for making decisions regarding the strategic direction of the school including:

  1. Approve the school strategic plan and updates
  2. Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations
  3. Manage the Request for Flexibility (RFF) process
  4. Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
  5. Provide annual feedback on principal performance
  6. Interface with the schools' Title I Committee.
