What is the SBDM Committee?


The Site-Based Decision Making Committee serves as an advisory council to the principal. The SBDM committee is comprised of campus staff, parents, business and community representatives. SBDM is designed to be the umbrella under which school-related issues, activities, and initiatives are discussed.


The recommendations and suggestions made by the committee should align with the campus improvement plan and promote student achievement. Ultimately, it is the principal who is responsible for the instructional and operational functions of the campus and therefore, final decisions are reserved for the principal. As school related issues occur or school activities and initiatives evolve, the SBDM committee may authorize a sub-committee to convene to resolve the issue or improve the activity or initiative.
