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.
