School Governance Council Details


What is a School Governance Council?

School Governance Councils were created by the state’s education reform law (Public Act 10-111) to enable parents, school staff, students and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement in the state’s schools. School Governance Councils serve in an advisory capacity and are charged with assisting the school administration in making programmatic and operational changes to improve the school’s achievement.


Who is on the School Governance Council?

The School Governance Councils required under C.G.S. Sec. 10-223e must be established through school-wide elections and they have very specific membership requirements. Students, teachers/staff and parents must be elected to the Council. The student members have to be elected to the council by the current students of the school. Seven parents, five teachers, two students and two community members comprise the SGC.


What are the goals of the School Governance Council?

The School Governance Council serves in an advisory capacity to the Principal. They help to further the goals of the School Improvement Plan.
