SGBs: What parents need to know

Parent Power aims to inspire and support parents in South Africa – empowering them to be champions for their children’s education.

SGB elections take place every three years in public schools, and by standing for election, or by voting someone in, parents have the chance to make sure that their voice is heard and that their child’s school is governed properly. 

By doing this parents can ensure there is no corruption at the school, that money is handled properly, and that all learners are treated fairly and equally and can fulfil their potential. The parents who are elected to the SGB have a duty to represent all parents at the school and to make sure that parents’ views are heard and respected. 

This resource pack shares ideas on how parents can engage in School Governing Bodies.
