GO TEAM Elections /¡Emitir su Voto!



What are GO Teams?

Local School Councils have been replaced with Local School Governance Teams or GO Teams and now have a more defined structure and decision-making authority.

Who serves on GO Teams?

GO Teams include nine voting members and the school principal. Each team consists of three elected parents/guardians, three elected instructional staff, two appointed community members, one appointed swing seat, and one appointed student (high school only).

How are GO Team members selected?

Parents and instructional staff must declare candidacy and community members must declare interest in participating. Parents and instructional staff are elected to their positions by their respective peers. The community member spots will be filled based upon a nomination from the principal and approval by the GO Team. Swing Seat members may be nominated by any GO Team member for approval by the full GO Team.
