It is time for the election of a new parent member to our School Governance Council. The School Governance Council has one parent/guardian position open for election. Parents or guardians of students who will be attending our school during both the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years are eligible to run for the parent/guardian SGC position. Our School Governance Council (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 achievements, and serve as school ambassadors to the local community.

Specifically, the School Governance Council has the following powers:

  • Create, approve, and monitor the implementation of the school strategic plan
  • Manage the Request for Flexibility process
  • 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

If you are interested in running for a position on the School Governance Council, please complete and submit a Parent/Guardian Candidate Declaration Form .

We are excited about the work and value-add of our SGC. We hope that you will consider running for a position! The Candidate Declaration period ends March 13th and voting will take place March 23-March 30. In the meantime, if you would like more information about the charter system or SGC elections visit our school’s website or our Charter System Overview

PTA Information

AMMS PTA Needs You!

Please consider applying for an open board position.

Applications can be found online at

Deadline for submission is March 23rd.

Link: Documents and Forms | AMMS PTA WEBSITE (


On Monday, March 7th through Tuesday, March 15th, 2022, you will be able to view your academic course requests again for next year. You can find this in the Infinite Campus Portal. This information will no longer be viewed in the Academic Plan but requires viewing through Next Course Requests (see Directions to Review Course Requests in the attachment)

Parents and Students:

Please review the 2022-23 course requests for your student through the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus. If you do not have a parent account, your student can access the course request through their Student Portal account. The requests for core classes that are listed are based on the information that was entered by your student’s current teachers based on criteria set by the county for course placement. This is the final opportunity to make edits to course requests so please take the time to make your requests and submit the form by March 15th. Please review course selections carefully.

This is NOT a schedule but only requests made to enable the school to create the master schedule. Students can view their actual schedules in early August when the district opens those for viewing. Those dates will be announced by the district and can be viewed also in the portal.

Summer school courses are not reflected in this information and will not be added to a schedule until they are completed. Courses that require an application (work-based learning, internship, dual enrollment, online classes, etc.) will not be added to a student’/s course request until they successfully complete and are approved for participation.

Points to remember:

  • The “R” represents the requested/required course, “E” is an elective.
  • The “A” represents the alternates students chose (these were not required to be submitted and serve as only information as the computer will not automatically schedule these courses)
  • Students will not be placed in more than one CTAE pathway course (Intro to Business, Engineering, AVTF, Marketing, etc.) to allow all students the opportunity for a pathway.
  • 6 Classes are required on the Course Selection Form
  • Virtual Course submissions must meet the March 31st deadline. The online contracts are available here and are accepted only for courses not taught at the high school.
  • The course waiver MUST be signed by both parent and student if the student is requesting to take a course that their teacher has not recommended.
  • The AP commitment MUST be signed by both parent and student if the student is requesting an AP course.

Rising 9th grade Information:

Forms must be submitted to Ms. Santos by March 15th at 4:00 p.m.
