SITE GOVERNANCE COUNCIL PARENT ELECTION
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, towards the end 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.
