School Governance Council Overview

The purpose of the School Governance Council (SGC) is to provide parents, school staff, students, and community members with a leadership role in the management of the strategic direction of our school in its academic mission. The council has five main responsibilities:

  • Develop and approve the school strategic plan and updates
  • Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations
  • Apply for and manage the Request for Flexibility process
  • Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
  • Provide annual feedback on principal performance.

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.  One of our most important goals is to ensure that we serve our school community effectively.  There are two main committees that provide support within the SGC.

Budget and Finance Committee

This committee will coordinate the council’s efforts to approve the annual school budget, review revenues and expenditures, and assist with acquiring community resources for the school.

Outreach and Communications Committee

This committee is tasked with keeping the community informed on the progress of our strategic plan, budget, and all requests for flexibility. In addition, the committee will seek community input for all flexibility requests and relay community feedback to the committee.
