Bird Rock Governance Team
The Governance Team (GT) is a shared decision making board, representing all stakeholders, and mandated at each school site by the San Diego Unified School Board. We meet once a month to discuss and make decisions about issues affecting our school and our children. Please refer to the By-laws regarding GT's "Scope of Interest." The team is comprised of five parent representatives, five teacher representatives, two classified staff, and the principal.
