All of the area of Steele Creek within the city limits is within City Council District 3. 

The City Council typically meets on Mondays at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E. Fourth Street. Meetings are broadcast on The Government Channel on Time-Warner Channel 16.

Mecklenburg County

Mecklenburg County departments and the Board of County Commissioners service many community needs, especially those related to health, education, welfare, mental health, and the environment. Core service areas include land use and environmental services, health and human services, and community services, including parks, libraries, and elections. The Board of County Commissioners sets the tax rate for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The Register of Deeds and Sheriff are elected separately from the County Commissioners.

Regular Meetings are held every first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Meeting Chamber of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center.  Meetings are broadcast on The Government Channel on Time-Warner Channel 16.

Budget/Public Policy Workshops are held every second Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. in Conference Center Room 267 of the CMGC (2nd floor). All of Steele Creek is within County Commissioner District 2.

Visit the County Commission web page for information on members and meetings.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) serves over 133,000 students in Mecklenburg County.
 
Twelve schools are located in Steele Creek: the five high schools in the Olympic Community of Schools, Kennedy Middle School, Southwest Middle School, Lake Wylie Elementary School, Steele Creek Elementary School, Winget Park Elementary School, and the newest schools, Berewick Elementary School and River Gate Elementary School, which opened in fall 2009.

Olympic High School received a $1.2 million grant from the Coalition of Essential Schools to convert it into five smaller, themed schools, now known as the Olympic Community of Schools. The small-schools concept is designed to boost academic achievement, better prepare students for college and skilled careers, and prepare students for global competitiveness.

 
Most of Steele Creek is within the attendance areas of the six schools listed above, but the northern edge of the community is within the West Mecklenburg High School, Wilson Middle School, and Berryhill Elementary School attendance areas. However, students have a variety of options in the Student Assignment Plan.

All of Steele Creek is within Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education District 2.

The regular Board meetings of the Board of Education are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. Meetings are broadcast on CMS-TV3 on Time-Warner cable channel 3. Visit the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools web page for more information.
