Bridges Community School is a public choice school in Mankato Area School District that is run by a Lead Teacher, who oversees day-to-day operations and the Bridges Site Council, which sets direction and policy for the school.

The Site Council consists of 7 teaching staff, 5 parents, 1 lead teacher, 1 Mankato School Board representative, 1 principal liason and 1 community representative.

The primary goals of site-based decision making are to improve trust based on open communication, cooperation and collaboration among the stakeholders.

Site Council meetings will be held at 3 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month from September through May. The meetings are in the upstairs media/library center. Any parent is always welcome to attend any of the meetings. An open forum is part of every Site Council meeting so parents can address the group.
