School-Based Decision Making Council

  • SBDM or School-Based Decision Making councils promote shared leadership among those who are closest to the students: families, teachers, and administrators of the local schools. The school council must set school policy to provide an environment to enhance student achievement and help the school reach its accountability goals. To meet this responsibility, councils should:  

    • Collect, interpret, and analyze information;
    • Set priorities, goals, and targets;
    • Establish committees, review committee reports, and consider their recommendations;
    • Evaluate achievement;
    • Work as a team;
    • Hold regularly scheduled meetings;
    • Conduct meetings in a democratic manner;
    • Get the required SBDM training;
    • Make student-based decisions;
    • Monitor policy and program implementation.
