Fowler Drive LSGT
The Fowler Drive Local School Governance Team (LSGT) is made up of committed school advocates: the school principal, 3 staff members, 3 parents and 3 community members. Teams can also add one or two at-large members. Team members work together to boost student achievement and have input into critical decisions including the school growth plan and budget.
The LSGT is led by the principal and team co-chair, a parent or community member. The Fowler Drive LSGT meets the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. The meetings are open and all are welcome to attend.
Please contact a co-chair for more information about the LSGT, future meetings or how you can get more involved.
SOARing...at FDES: Learning Beyond the Classroom LSGT Grant
In 2018, the Clarke County School District set aside grant funds to distribute to LSGTs to create innovative programs that build the capacity of schools and communities to support the achievement, success, and well-being of children in alignment of one or more of the District's focus areas of literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development.
Grant Budget: $31,544
Fowler Drive will be focusing on numeracy, literacy, and SEL for their innovation. The program focuses on implementing research based practices inside and out of the classroom to improve SEL. Students will have opportunities to visit local businesses and industries where they can learn the needed skills and dispositions to work in these areas. They will be provided opportunities to shadow school and community leaders. The proposal relies heavily on building a strong school community and student professional development. Real world scenarios will be incorporated into literacy and numeracy learning. SMART goals will highlight areas of need and prioritize action. Fowler expects to see a 50% increase in achievement in the areas of literacy and math, as well as increased opportunities for interacting with “community people” and resources.
