George B. Dealey Site-Based Decision Making

Vote Today!

The Site-Based Decision Making (SBDM) Committee serves as an advisory council to the principal.  The SBDM committee is comprised of the campus principal, and teacher, school staff, parent, business and community representatives.

The SBDM is designed to be the umbrella under which all school related issues, activities, and initiatives are discussed.  The recommendations and suggestions made by the committee should align with the campus improvement plan and promote student achievement.  Ultimately, it is the principal who is responsible for the instructional and operational functions of the campus, therefore final decisions are reserved for the principal.

As school related issues occur or school activities and initiatives evolve, the SBDM committee may authorize a sub-committee to convene to resolve the issue or implement the activity and initiative.  Sub-Committees vary from school to school depending on the needs of the campus and community.

The following five areas serve as the primary function of the SBDM:

  • Goal Setting
  • Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
  • Budgeting
  • Staffing Patterns
  • School Organization

Parent representatives on the SBDM are elected by the Dealey parent base or are nominated by the principal, and they serve a two-year term.

Vote for TWO candidates here:

Voting is open until May 12th.
