SEEKING CANDIDATES FOR THE SITE GOVERNANCE COUNCIL
The Franklin Elementary School Site Governance Council (SGC) is looking for parents to run for membership. This year’s election is for six parent representatives, each serving a two-year term. The SGC is comprised of elected parent representatives, teachers, and administrators, and is involved in many aspects of the school, including developing the school Site Plan, which seeks to increase academic achievement.
The term of service for parent members is two years, but terms are staggered to maintain continuity. We actively encourage representation from all members of the Franklin parent body. Membership on the SGC entails attending monthly meetings that are generally conducted on the last Monday of the month at 3:15 p.m. These meetings are vital to the Council’s role, and attendance is strongly encouraged.
