Nominations and statements of interest will be posted on the Grady website, in the Grady Gram, and outside the Grady main office April 27 - May 10, 2015.

(2) Seat 3: parent representative 1-year term ending May 2016.
(3) Seat 4: parent/business representative 2-year term ending May 2017.
Membership terms begin immediately after the election. Newly elected Council members must attend orientation training prior to participating in Council meetings.
The criteria to qualify as a parent representative candidate is that one must be the parent of a currently enrolled Grady High School student who is listed on the student records, and have filed their nomination with the Election Committee no later than midnight on the last day of the nomination period. No parent representative candidate may be a relative of the principal or an employee of APS at Henry W. Grady High School or have been convicted of a felony.
Elections will be held on May 12, 2015, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm in the Grady High School Murray Auditorium lobby. Each parent/guardian of a student enrolled in the school shall be entitled to one vote for each vacant parent/guardian member position on the Council. Voting will be by secret ballot and parents/guardians will have to present their state or other government issued photo ID or sign to verify eligibility.
The Local School Council meets a minimum of 4 times per school year (typically monthly). It is a legislatively mandated collaborative group of parents, teachers, business partners and the school principal, assembled to address issues related to student achievement and school improvement towards furthering Grady’s record as a center of educational excellence that prepares all students for success.
Please give this position thoughtful consideration. Local School Council service is a great way to be involved in educational issues which directly affect our students and our school. For more information, please contact the Grady LSC Election Committee at GradyLSC@gmail.com.
