RTMS Professional Development Days
February 16, 2016

The River Trail School Governance Council requested, and was approved for professional learning days for the 2015-2016 school year.  Students will not attend school on these days.  River Trail teachers will participate in professional development courses that will increase classroom instruction strategies in the areas of project based learning and critical thinking.  These days ONLY apply to RTMS, not students at other Fulton County Schools.

SGC Elections

 

Parents,

It is time for the election of new members to our School Governance Council. The School Governance Council (SGC) has two parent/guardian positions open for election which were previously held by Allison Clough and Rob Everett.  Parents or guardians of students who will be attending our school during both the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years are eligible to run for the parent/guardian SGC positions.

Our SGC plays a critical role in the success of our school. The SGC works with school leadership and the community to help determine the long-term direction of the school, design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement, and serve as school ambassadors to the local community.  Specifically, the School Governance Council has the following powers:

  • Approve the school strategic plan and updates
  • Manage the Request for Flexibility process
  • Manage Seed Fund requests
  • Approve the annual budget recommendations and related allocations
  • Participate in the hiring of the principal, in the case of a vacancy
  • Provide annual feedback to the Area Superintendent on principal performance

Our current SGC has been an invaluable resource.  The Council worked diligently to implement Project Based Learning, including training for our teachers through the Buck Institute, improved Connections multi-year pathway for children with a passion for art, a 6th grade camp for new students entering River Trail and a new engineering Connections course and laboratory.

Applicants interested in running for a position on the School Governance Council, please complete and submit a Parent/Guardian Candidate Declaration Form.  Forms can be found at the school's front office or on the district website. Voting in the SGC elections will be held March 23rd-March 29th.  Here is additional information about the charter system.

Sincerely,

Principal Dawn Melin
