c.) Manage Request for Flexibility process
d.) Participate in hiring of the principal (in the case of a vacancy)

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

- 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
