YES Governance

The establishment of School Governance Teams (SGT), pursuant to the Barrow County Schools Charter System petition, is intended to help local boards of education develop and nurture participation, bring parents and the community together with teachers and school administrators to create a better understanding of and mutual respect for each other's concerns, and share ideas for school improvement.


The SGT is entrusted with the responsibility of providing input, making recommendations, and rendering decisions regarding various aspects of the instructional program of the school and the school’s operational scheme. SGTs replace existing School Councils at all schools.


As is required by the Constitution of the State of Georgia, the management and control of public schools shall be the responsibility of the local board of education.
