School-Based Decision-Making Council
Lexington Traditional Magnet School has a School-Based Decision-Making Council to serve our school consisting of the principal, three teachers, and two parents. This group works diligently to meet the needs of our school community. Please remember to talk to your council representatives with any suggestions or comments to make our school the best possible learning community. Note: Elections are held each May for the teacher and parent representatives.
SBDM councils promote shared leadership among those who are closest to the students: parents, teachers, and administrators. As the school's governing body, the council determines curriculum, staffing, discipline, scheduling, instructional practices, extra-curricular activities, and other matters pertinent to the operation. The 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:
Decide targets for closing achievement gaps;
Determine the professional learning plan for the school;
Meet monthly and comply with the Open Meetings and Open Records Act;
Consult on vacancies (principal, classified, and certified positions); and
Write and review policies.
We meet at 5:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday in Zoom, until further notice.
