WHAT IS A GO TEAM?
All school systems in the State of Georgia were required to select a new district operating model. As a result, beginning July 1, 2016, Atlanta Public Schools became a Charter System, which means our district is working to create more freedom and flexibility for our schools to find new ways to boost student achievement. The best part — parents, educators and community members now share in the decision-making process by joining the school’s GO Team.
Virginia-Highland Elementary will build our GO Teams through the established election and appointment cycle; the first election will be held in the spring of the school’s first year of operation. Schools will have a full GO Team after the organizational GO Team meeting in their third year of operation.
