Seeking the next RCMS School Governance Council Members
The Ridgeview SGC is seeking parents who will be elected through the candidate declaration process to join our council's strategic work. In addition to typical council responsibilities, the RCMS SGC is strategically focused on two unique committees - Ridgeview United which aims to celebrate the diversity of Ridgeview's diverse community inside and outside of the school and Enhancing the RCMS Image which aims to improve the image of RCMS inside and outside of the school.
If interested, please reach out to any current council member and declare your candidacy February 2nd to March 2nd at fultonschools.org/elections.
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:
- Approve the school strategic plan and updates
- Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations
- Manage the Request for Flexibility process
- Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
- Provide annual feedback on principal performance.
The Ridgeview SGC typically meets the second Tuesday each month.
October 17 (deviation from second Tuesday)
February 22 (called budget meeting; deviation from second Tuesday)
March 19 (deviation from second Tuesday)
All meetings unless otherwise specified will be held at 7:30 a.m in the Ridgeview Media Center. Visitors can join as well.
