The ATC Governing Council

The ATC Governing Council is a seven member body composed of ATC parents and community members who are elected by ATC parents and staff. The Council serves as ATC's governing body under ATC's Charter. The Council's responsibilities include development and approval of school policy, academic goals, facility plans, and ATC's budget. The Council hires and supervises the principal. The Council operates under applicable state laws and regulations, ATC's Charter, and the Council's Bylaws.

The Council meets regularly every first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 for executive session and 6:30 for open session in the ATC Multipurpose Room. The Council also holds special meetings at other publicly announced times. The Council's meetings are held in accordance with the Open Meetings Act. ATC parents, students and staff are encouraged to attend Council meetings in order to be informed about school issues and to have their voices heard during the public comment portion of each meeting.
