System prepares charter councils
Placeholder Image
The Dawson County school system has begun preparing to set up school governance councils at each of its seven campuses after achieving charter system status in June. "We are very excited to begin this new chapter in our system and grateful that the State Board of Education has shown confidence that we can wisely use the flexibility that we have been granted," Superintendent Keith Porter said. The seven-member councils will consist of the school’s principal and two members from each of the following groups: parents, teachers and business community representatives.
