School Governance Council

The School Governance Council (SGC), is a state mandated committee that is headed by the principal, is made up of parents, teachers, and staff who meet monthly during the school year to focus on school climate, student achievement, and the school’s budget to evaluate the best plan of action to keep our school moving upward toward its goals. The SGC helps determine funding priorities, develop a budget, and update the school’s site plan to support teachers, students, and families.  In the Berkeley Unified School District, each school has a School Governance Council which combines the responsibilities of the state-mandated School Site Councils (such as writing the School Plan and allocating certain state funds directed to schools) as well as the duties of looking at all school spending including BSEP Site Funds, a portion of special local funds that go directly to school sites.

Alternates are encouraged to attend SGC meetings to participate in the discussions. If a voting member is absent, an alternate votes. All parents are also encouraged to attend SGC meetings.  The school needs the collective wisdom of all voices at SGC!
