Site Governance Team (SGT)

Cheetah Eye

If you are interested in participating as a representative of the community, parents or students, please contact Tania Verdugo, 858-302-3000, extension 3020 or [email protected].

Purpose Statement
The district's position with restructuring and site governance teams is "for the purpose of enhancing student achievement. The sole reason to move the focus of control to the Site Governance Team is for the improvement of the instructional program, not merely to empower the stakeholders at the site."

The Eye of the Cheetah mural, completed by artist Justine Devine in 2009, watches the students during lunch from it's home on the two-story 900 building.

The Process
1. Any stakeholder may submit an agenda item for SGT consideration. Stakeholders include students, parents, teachers, and classified employees at Challenger. All stakeholders have representative(s) that serve on SGT on their behalf. For more detailed info regarding representatives, refer to tables below.
2. All agenda items must be submitted in writing directly to the representative. Requests must include a title and a 2-5 sentence proposal outlining the concern/question/idea.
3. Representatives will forward all submitted agenda items to Principal Erik Sullivan, SGT Chairperson Kelly Nowakowski, and SGT Secretary Julie Vitale via email 10 days before the scheduled meeting.
