“Know Your Cluster” – NAPPS Speaker Series 2015 – 2016

Date: September 2, 2015 Author: Lisa Perlin Categories: Announcements, News, Uncategorized


Atlanta Public Schools will transition to a charter model for the 2016-2017 school year. This structural change will transfer some decision making authority to community members elected to the cluster’s Local School Governance Teams (LSGTs). To best educate and inform community members who may wish to run for election, NAPPS will hold monthly general meetings this year designed to share information regarding cluster demographics, programming and testing. It is our hope that by sharing this information we not only help educate our future representatives but help educate our cluster’s electorate as well.
