     School-based decision making (SBDM) is a shared process in which most of the policies and plans for instruction are made at the local school. It gives teachers, principals, and families 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.

    Please be advised, due to the nationally proclaimed state of emergency and under a similar declaration by Governor Andy Beshear, it is not currently feasible for the SBDM to “provide meeting room conditions” in the face of  COVID-19, a highly contagious virus that spreads between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Under these exceptional circumstances in which the Commonwealth of Kentucky is confronting a worldwide pandemic while nevertheless needing to accomplish critical public business, pursuant to KRS 61.840.  Consequently, the BSHS SBDM Council will not provide a primary physical location for public viewing and will proceed pursuant to KRS 61.826 with concessions outlined in the Attorney General’s Opinion OAG 20-05.  Thus, the public can access the meeting via the live stream, but there will not be a physical location to participate in the meeting.
