Atlanta Public Schools (APS) became a charter system on September 25, 2015 to increase student achievement and improve organizational effectiveness and efficiency. APS’s charter contract is effective July 1, 2016. A key component of operating as a Georgia charter system is the establishment of Local School Governance Teams at the 71 APS neighborhood schools. Local School Governance Teams are also known as LSGTs and/or GO Teams. GO Teams work with school leadership and the community to help determine the long-term direction of the school, design innovative solutions to increase student achievement, and serve as school ambassadors to the local community. 

    GO Teams meet at least six times per year, and all meetings are open to the public. Meetings of the GO Team for Kimberly Elementary School will be held on the 2nd Thursday of each month (August - June) at 6pm in the Media Center at L.O. Kimberly Elementary School (1090 Windsor St, Atlanta, GA 30310).  For information on GO Teams, contact us at 404.802.2885.
