• Local School Council (LSC) at KME

    Kelly Mill, in our fourth year of existence, is excited to provide another opportunity for community involvement through its Local School Council, or LSC.

    LSCs are advisory bodies that provide recommendations to the school principal and FC Board of Education. Councils meet at least four times a year. All meetings and corresponding minutes are open to the public.

    Forsyth County Schools has a strong tradition of local school governance involving staff, parent and community partners. Originally called Local School Advisory Councils (LSACs), FCS converted to Local School Councils (LSCs) in 2000 under Georgia's the A+ Education Reform Act.

    FCS has active LSCs in all schools, with the exception of those schools that have been open for less than a year. Councils are comprised of a minimum of seven council members, including the principal, at least two certified teachers elected by teachers, parents (who make up the majority of the council, with at least two being business persons) and other members as specified in the bylaws of the school’s LSC.

    We actively seek interest by teachers, parents and business partners for our Local School Council to provide advisory guidance as we endeavor to do what is best for our Colts.

    If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit a brief bio detailing your connection to KME and your interest in being part of the LSC to rmcallister@forsyth.k12.ga.us. Teacher and Parent positions are elected by their respective representative groups and typically serve a two year term depending on bylaws.

    Bio:

    I am a mom of three kids who will be in the 7th, 5th, and 3rd grades for the 2021-2022 school year. We moved to the KME/Hendricks district from the Johns Creek Elementary area where I served on the LSC for two terms with the principal Alyssa Degliumberto. I also have served as a room mom and on the teacher appreciation team. I really enjoyed serving the school and staff through those roles, and would love to serve again in this way at KME or Hendricks. We have loved being a part of this community so far and look forward to finding more ways to engage with our awesome schools.

    Most importantly, I am a teacher at heart! I think teaching is the most important job in the world, and it’s an honor to serve our teachers and administrators and support their hard work. I have an English Education degree from UGA and taught at South Forsyth High School and then Lambert High School until 2013 when our youngest child was born. Most of my time in the classroom was spent with seniors, teaching AP Literature and Composition. My passions in education are to instill a love of reading in students, teach them the skills to confidently express themselves well through writing, and challenge them to approach each crossroads in life with joy, hard work, and confidence.

    During my time at Lambert, I received the honor of being the Teacher of the Year and subsequently the Forsyth County Teacher of the Year.  Currently my job is leading a program for graduate seminary students at our church. Being a helpful and supportive part of a school community is important to our family, and we look forward to contributing well where we can, whether it’s on the LSC, or in another volunteer role.

    Bio:

    My name is David Holliman, my daughter Sydney is a rising 1st grader in the DLI program, and my oldest Emma will be starting 6th grade at Hendricks Middle School. I’m an Executive Account Manager for a large cloud computing company here in Atlanta. My focus is to help companies become more agile and productive utilizing our software. Many times this involves discussions at the executive levels, so effective communication is a must. It also requires patience and empathy, all of which I feel can translate to the school council. I also believe that every parent’s responsibility is to be involved in their child’s education, not just a bystander.
