  • A Local School Governance Team in each school is the method the school system will use to get the community, parents and teachers involved in decision making to maximize educational opportunities for children. The AMS Local School Governance Team (LSGT) will seek to provide the best possible learning environment for the children in our community.


    Local School Governance Team Members

    The Governance Team is made up of the principal, 2 parents, 2 community leaders, and 2 faculty members. Middle and high schools will also include student participation in a manner decided by the schools.  LSGT groups may add members to the LSGT in accordance with the LSGT Bylaws.
