School Advisory Council

The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a cross-functional group of parents, teachers, students, alumni, and staff that work to support MLWGS in achieving its mission of providing exceptional students with an exceptional environment and opportunities. 

SAC consists of 18 representatives from the above groups and meets monthly as a team; however, conducts most of its work in smaller committees.  6 members of SAC are parents chosen by the PTSA, 4 are students (2 juniors and 2 seniors chosen from an application process), 4 are teachers or staff members, up to 3 are Director appointees (including 1 alumnus), 1 from the school administration, and 1 from the Planning Committee.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School Advisory Council (SAC) is to serve in an advisory capacity to enhance the quality of education, promote comprehensive educational opportunities, support the effective components of the existing programs, and ensure that the MLWGS mission is achieved.
