What is SBDM?

The SBDM is a campus-level team of parents (3), district staff member (1), campus teachers (4), campus administrator (1) and community members (2) who regularly consult with a principal in the planning, operation, supervision and evaluation of the campus educational program. [Education Code 11.253(h)]


The purpose of site-based decision-making in the FWISD is to improve the level of student achievement for all students in all schools. More information can be found on the FWISD website.
