SchomePark Governance Group

From The Schommunity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Governance Group has been made to discuss how Schome Park should be run in the long term, to reduce the SParkers' dependence on the support staff, in order for the pilot to continue as long as possible. A 'self-sufficient' government has been decided as the best way forward, and the SParkers are currently holding meetings to decide matters such as how this government should be formed and who should make decisions.

Check out a tongue-in-cheek summary of political systems which we might adopt on Schome Park or the version which explains all political systems with the help of cows (or, in the case of surrealism, giraffes).

Anyone is welcome to join the Governance Group, just add your name to the list at the bottom of the page.

The Departments

Government who's who tells you who is on the government and gives you contact information so you can talk to them easily.

The Government

The government is almost up and running now, and in a few days, it will all be decided. This is a reminder to anyone who has not signed up yet that the topic is here to volunteer for a department, which must be done by Saturday.

Who's Who page will tell you who the people in the government are, so that you can easily contact them if you need to speak to them.

Stuff is finally underway, and within this week you will be able to vote for people for different departments on the government. Please read this topic for information regarding voting etc.

Please go here to vote for your department, by Saturday 12th May

Questions We Need To Ask Ourselves

How should SchomePark be run? right now the support staff are making all the decisions but they are keen to step back and get the students taking on more decision making roles. Should the staff just choose students? or should students choose by having a vote? What roles should there be? How long should somebody stay in that role? What happens if somebody takes on a role and they don't take it seriously? Probably a lot of these decisions can be made by looking at other groups and organisations and using their structures so we don't have to operate in a complete vacuum here - but what route should we take?

PeterT's Vision

PeterT has outlined his vision of the future of SchomePark after the official end of the NAGTY pilot and he's keen to see students keeping the Park running - with as much self-government as possible. So this is a really important group.

The Governance Group

During the first couple of weeks in SchomePark, some of the SParkers and staff have been talking about how things should be run and how decisions should be made. Some people have posted on the forum about it - talking about the idea of a student-run "government" to make decisions, and wondering how disputes should be resolved. At the Building meeting in the auditorium on March 21st, 19.00, the idea was raised that a "governance group" could be formed where people who were interested could chat about ideas and maybe propose some ways forward.

This is a group open to anybody interested, add your name below.
