CCSD SCHOOLS TO HOLD ELECTIONS FOR LOCAL SCHOOL GOVERNANCE TEAMS

Schools throughout CCSD will hold elections for their Local School Governance Teams March 20-29.

LSGTs give parents, community members and educators a greater voice in important decisions regarding their school. Three parents and three school staff members are elected to serve on each school’s LSGT. With the principal, they select three community members and, at the middle and high schools, one student representative to join the team.

The district invites parents and educators to consider serving on their school’s LSGT and play a key role in helping each school grow, plan for the years ahead and constantly improve to benefit students. If you are interested in serving on an LSGT, please complete this form.

Team members contribute to their school by:

  • Approving and monitoring the school growth plan

  • Helping to identify student and family needs

  • Providing input into budget, personnel and other important decisions

  • Participating in the principal hiring process by selecting finalists

  • Advocating for their school

Elections will take place March 20-29, which includes parent-teacher conference days. To submit your name for consideration or to learn more about LSGTs and CCSD’s charter system model, visit https://www.clarke.k12.ga.us/lsgt.
