Stargate Governance 101:
What is a Stakeholders Presentation?  The Stargate Bylaws require the Board to inform the community each fall of the strategic goals for the school year.  During breaks on each curriculum night, members of the Board will be available to answer questions and talk about accomplishments from last year and goals for this year.

If you have a question for the board, please send an email to

Fall Elections:
There are a lot of opportunities to get involved with governance of the school. The Accountability Committee and the Recruiting Committee will have elections in September to fill several open seats. The Accountability Committee is made up of parents and staff who provide support to the Board through surveys of the community and reviewing the Unified Improvement Plan for submission to the District. The Recruiting Committee helps find volunteers for committees and the Board.
These are great opportunities to get experience in committees at Stargate. If you're interested in volunteering, submit your application to by September 12. Applications can be found in section 7 of the forms and files page.
