GO Team Info / Sarah Smith GO Team Overview

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE GO TEAM?

On September 25, 2015, the State Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the Atlanta Public Schools charter system application during its state board meeting. A charter system is a school district that operates under a performance-based contract between the local board and the state board of education. Under the Charter System, Atlanta Public Schools would gain freedom and flexibility from many state education laws and regulations in exchange for increased accountability for student achievement.

A key element to a charter system is moving decision-making closer to where learning takes place. That means leaving decisions to the school system and to the schools within the system. It also means involving more people in the decision-making process.  To this end, implementing a “Go Team” for each school is the method the school system has decided upon to get the community, parents, and teachers involved in decision making to maximize educational opportunities for our students. Most members will serve a 2-year term. The GO Team is guided by the school’s strategic plan. Click here to access the updated school strategic plan.
