Timothy Road LSGT
The Timothy Road 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 Timothy Road LSGT meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 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.
EPIC Clusters: Emotional Prosperity In Children 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: $20,900
Timothy Road will be focusing on social-emotional development with their proposed innovation. The program incorporates structured courses that will be implemented through the school, parents, volunteers, and community partners. The course will assist students with SEL by integrating social skills into course activities. These courses will span 8 weeks with each lasting an hour to an hour and a half. Courses include gardening, cooking, wood shop, yoga, theatre, pottery, botany and environmental sciences. These courses start six weeks after the beginning of the school year and are designed to be diverse, engaging, and include components that are intended to improve student SEL. This program addresses the need for SEL development, college and career readiness, reducing absenteeism, and family engagement.
