Site-Based Decision Making (SBDM)

The site-based decision making team is an integral part of school-based management in the FWISD.  This team is comprised of 7 to 11 members, including the principal, assistant principal, three teachers, three parent citizens and up to four other members that can be added as determined by the team. 

As leader of the management team, the principal schedules regular meetings to discuss academics, programming, organizing, implementing and evaluating for excellence in all facets of the school's operations.  The principal and management team are responsible for reviewing the school-based programs, budget, and the quality of all activities in the school.  They are also accountable to the Superintendent and the Board of Education.  Meetings are open, but only management team members have a vote.
