Fulton County Looking at Charter System Educational Model in Work Session, today
Schools

During a work session, today, Fulton County Schools Superintendent Cindy Loe will present information about the district’s exploration of charter system status. The meeting began with a 12:30 p.m. executive session at the district’s Administrative Center, followed by workshop presentations at 2 p.m.

If Fulton County becomes a charter system, it will be the first large school system in Georgia to receive this status. A change like this could mean more flexibility in spending, staffing, and innovation in its educational model; it could also mean greater involvement and decision-making authority for parents.

Fulton will continue studying charter system status throughout the current school year and will later decide whether to petition the state school board for approval. Seven meetings are set for system employees and parents to learn about the charter process and provide input. The first will be October 18 at Johns Creek High School beginning at 4:30 for Fulton staff and 6:30 p.m. for parents and the community.

The entire community engagement schedule is posted at www.fultonschools.org/chartersystem.
