The way GO! is managed has been determined in a special decree. GO! is administered under the authority of the Flemish Community on three different levels: the school (local), the group of schools (regional) and the GO! Council (central level).
The GO! Council’s main mission is to guarantee free choice of education in Flanders and the Brussels Capital Region. The Council also makes the main strategic choices for the future of GO!. It is supported by administrative and pedagogic services, located in the Alhambra Building in Brussels.
The real administrative power belongs to the 28 groups of schools. Each group of schools manages all GO! institutions of education in a given region, consisting of a number of primary and secondary schools: in most cases this also includes a centre for adult education and/or educational counselling. Groups of schools are managed by a general director, a board of governors and a board of principals.
GO! offers education at all levels, except for higher education. GO! schools are spread all over Flanders and the Brussels-Capital region. Many GO! schools have different locations, in several areas of a town or city. The school and different locations are managed by one director, a school council, a parents’ council and a pedagogical council.
