MPE School Governance Council
Fulton County Schools developed a 3-year phase-in for the charter system, and Mountain Park is a member of “Cohort 1.” Along with 19 other schools in the district, MPE is excited to be part of the first group of charter system schools.
The Mountain Park Elementary School Governance Council was elected in the winter of 2012. The Council is charged with the meaningful work of helping to determine the long-term direction of the school and exploring innovative strategies to increase academic achievement. Our work will include: approving the school’s annual budget and annual strategic plan and designing specialized educational experiences aligned to increase student achievement.

All meetings begin at 7:30 a.m. For those of you wishing to provide public comment at the meeting, there is a 20-minute window at the beginning of each Council meeting set aside for this.
