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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Teacher and Parent positions are elected by their respective representative groups and typically serve a two year term depending on bylaws.

I currently have two children at Kelly Mill Elementary. My daughter has been here since Kindergarten and will be going into 5th grade and my son will be in first grade. I have loved being involved here these past 5 years volunteering in the classroom, PTA, being room-mom, and helping teachers with anything that they have needed assistance with.
A quick background on me - I grew up in Alpharetta, Georgia and have always been passionate about Education. I received my undergraduate degree in Child Development with a concentration in Education and Psychology. I also completed my Masters Degree in Education and was certified for Elementary and Middle grades. I have also taught second and fifth grade at Medlock Bridge Elementary right here in Johns Creek.
I’ve seen firsthand through teaching and with my own children how student achievement correlates with high expectations, quality teaching, accountability, and recognizing each students learning style. I’m proud to be a part of KME & would like to help the school continue to be recognized as one of the best elementary schools in Forsyth County.
