Did you know that more than 700 parents, educators and community members are actively governing each of our schools via GO Teams? That’s right! At Atlanta Public Schools, local School Governance Teams (GO Teams) represent each school and have decision-making authority over the school’s strategic plan, budget approval, school-based solution flexibility requests, and more.
Now you have the opportunity to join this group of powerful school leaders! Declare your interest in running for a 2-year seat on a GO Team. Candidate declarations are open February 1- February 28. Voting will take place in April.
Candidate Qualifications changed slightly with the 2021 APS Charter System Renewal:
- Parent/Guardian: Parent/Legal guardian must have a child enrolled at the school for at least 1 year of the 2-year term. Parent/Legal guardian may not be on staff at the school where they wish to serve in a Parent/Guardian seat.
- Non-supervisory Instructional Staff: Must be a full-time employee at the school where you are seeking a GO Team seat. Must be in a non-supervisory instructional position.
No experience is needed. Tools and training will be provided.
