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 recommendations and resource allocations 
c.) Manage Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy) 
e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance 

Webb Bridge's School Governance Council welcomes feedback related to the school strategic plan and implementation of related programs.  You may contact any council member in person or via email (below).  Public Comment time is also allocated at the beginning of each regularly-scheduled SGC meeting. The protocol for requesting a two-minute time slot is linked here.
