Site Governance Team

The Governance Team is a shared decision making body, required at each school by the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education.

The teams meet regularly to discuss and make decisions about issues affecting our school and our children.

The team includes parents, teachers and classified staff, and the principal. The agendas are available for public review and the meetings are open to the public.

Parents are welcome to call parent members with questions and concerns to be brought to the team.
