SBDM Parent Representative Elections
It’s SBDM Election Time!
Serving on the School-Based Decision Making Council (SBDM) is one way to get more involved in your child's school. SBDM is the governing body that gives parents, teachers, and principals the power to determine the direction of their schools. It was enacted to improve student learning by letting the people closest to students make educational decisions. The council determines school policy for curriculum, staffing, discipline, scheduling, instructional practices, extracurricular activities, and other matters pertinent to the operation of the school.
You may view the applications, pictures, and resumes of the candidates for election below:
Nominees will be announced via email and will speak at the May 24th General PTA meeting at 6:30pm in the cafeteria. Applicants’ letters of interest will be emailed to all families and hard copies will be available for review in the office. The election will take place on May 25th from 7:15-8:15am and 2-5pm.

MAXWELL ANNOUNCES STOP! TIPLINE
REPORT BULLYING “ONLINE”
Safety is our first priority. In an effort to use every able resource to STOP bullying and other risky behaviors in our schools, Maxwell proudly announces the implementation of the “Safety Tipline Online Prevention” or STOP! Tipline. The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.
Our hope is that students who fear face-to-face reporting of bullying or other safety issues may be less reluctant to share this vital information when offered an “online” option by giving students the ability to report concerns over their tablets, computers or mobile phones. We can now reach more students and address problems before they escalate.
The process for using the tip line involves locating the STOP Tipline logo on the school homepage in the top navigation menu, on the popular links icons, or under School Quick Links. Immediately, students or community members can anonymously report bullying, cyber-bullying, violence, risky behavior, or other safety concerns to school personnel by using a basic email format. Tips can be left anonymously or students may choose to have someone contact them. More information can be found about the tip line at www.kycss.org/stop/about.php
The announcement of the STOP! Tipline aligned with the Kentucky Safe Schools Week theme this year “Be the Hero; Stop the Bullying!” By using the tipline any student can become a “Silent Hero”. www.kysafeschools.org/ssw.php
This tip line is just another powerful tool in our arsenal against bullying, harassment, and other unsafe behaviors in our schools. Our Comprehensive Safe School Plan is ever evolving to keep our students and staff safe, and we are using every resource available to do so.
