The purpose of the School Governance Council is to provide parents, school staff, and community members with a leadership role in the management of the school. The School Governance Council is a governing body that is representative of the community and the school, but operates under the control and management of the Board of Education. The Council is responsible for making decisions regarding the strategic direction of the school including:
a.) Approve the school strategic plan and updates
b.) Approve the annual budget recommendations and resource allocations
c.) Manage Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
e.) Provide annual feedback on principal performance
Webb Bridge's School Governance Council welcomes feedback related to the school strategic plan and implementation of related programs. You may contact any council member in person or via email (below). Public Comment time is also allocated at the beginning of each regularly-scheduled SGC meeting.

School Governance Councils
School Governance Councils are an integral component of Fulton's charter system. School Governance Councils, or SGCs, are responsible for setting and monitoring the strategic direction of the schools.
Powers & Responsibilities
The responsibilities of SGCs are as follows:
- Approve the school's Strategic Plan
- Approve the school's budget recommendations
- Manage the Request for Flexibility process
- Participate in the hiring process when hiring a new principal
- Provide feedback on the principal's performance
- Interface with the school's Title I committee (where applicable)
The SGC has 9 voting members:
- 3 parents/guardians (elected by parents/guardians of the school)
- 2 teachers (elected by school employees)
- 2 community members (nominated by the principal, approved by the SGC)
- 2 school employees (appointed by the principal)
The principal serves on all SGCs as a non-voting member. Additionally, 2 students serve on high school SGCs as non-voting members. This makes a total of 10 SGC members in elementary and middle schools and 12 members at high schools.
