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 2nd and voting will take place March 23-March 30.
