Governing Council

Pilot Schools have a school-based governance structure with increased decision-making power over budget, principal selection and evaluation, and program policies, while complying with legal requirements. 

The Governing School Council (GSC):

(1) sets and maintains the school vision;

(2) selects, supervises, and evaluates their principal with final approval by the Local District Superintendent;

(3) approves the annual budget;

(4) approves the annual Election-to-Work Agreement (EWA) for UTLA staff; and

(5) establishes bylaws and school policies, consistent with applicable laws and regulations, that the school community feels will help students to be successful. 


The GSC has 12 members:

  • 1 Principal
  • 4 Teachers
  • 1 Classified staff member
  • 3 Students
  • 3 Parents

The GSC meets monthly, on the second Tuesday of every month at 4:45pm via Zoom, unless otherwise indicated. During the pandemic, on-campus meetings are being replaced with online Zoom meetings after school hours
