YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE 2024
SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY (SGB) ELECTIONS
SGBs - The watchmen and gatekeepers of public schools
FOR SA is calling on all parents of school-going children to get ready to participate in the school governing body (SGB) elections that are taking place in March 2024.
Your participation in the governance of the (public) school attended by your children is crucial. It is the only way you can help to ensure that they are not taught anything that undermines the beliefs and values that you have the right to instil in them.
How do you participate? By voting and/or standing for your SGB!
FOR SA has put together this resource page to help you learn more about:
- The importance of SGBs (how they help uphold parental rights in the public education system).
- How SGB elections work (including the upcoming 2024 SGB election) – including how you can participate.
Official SGB election guide and province-specific regulations
The DBE is expected to publish an official guide for the 2024 SGB elections. Each of the nine provinces will also publish regulations setting out exactly how its elections will work. FOR SA will link these documents here as they become available.
