Oglethorpe Avenue LSGT
The Oglethorpe Avenue 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 Oglethorpe Avenue LSGT meets the first Tuesday of each month. 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.

"L" is for Literacy Summer Program 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: $24,000
Oglethorpe will be addressing the areas of literacy and social-emotional development with their proposed innovation. The program will focus on lower level quartile students K-2 so as to allow for early intervention. The summer program runs for 12 days (4 hours each day) and students will be provided with transportation, breakfast, and lunch. Each week students will take home a book bag with 5 books. Additionally, students will go on educational field trips and listen to the occasional guest speaker. Reading these books will help students be prepared for the start of school in a fun and innovative way. This event will be the first to be held in the new Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary building. The goal of the program is to help with adjustment from summer to a new school year. A smoother transition will improve social emotional development while the content will improve literacy.
