Governance Council

The Governance Council is the principal Ad Hoc committee of the SSC.   The Governance Council was created for the purpose of empowering faculty/staff, students, parents, and members of the local community to directly contribute to the on-going success of Carlmont in the areas of technology, curriculum, safety, communication, and school policies.  The council also works toward assessing and optimizing the climate and culture at Carlmont, as well as assisting the SSC in meeting the school’s SPSA goals and objectives.
As of the start of the 2023-2023 school year Governance Council members attend joint monthly meetings as members of the Carlmont Site Council. As needs arise Governance Council serves as an ad hoc subcommittee to further investigate and create recommendations.
