The Franklin Elementary School Site Governance Council (SGC) is looking for parents to run for membership. This year’s election is for five parent representatives, each serving a two-year term. The purpose of the SGC is to review Franklin students’ academic achievement and consider ways to enhance academic success. This is done through assisting the Administration in developing a Site Plan.
The SGC consists of members of the staff (teachers, administration, and classified personnel) and parent representatives. 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.
Members of the SGC attend monthly meetings that are generally conducted on a selected Monday every month at 3:15 p.m. in Room 3. However, at the beginning of the school year, the Council typically meets at least twice a month. These meetings are vital to the Council’s role and attendance is strongly encouraged.
