    Responsibilities of SDMC  

    Each committee will be designed to involve professional and nonprofessional staff members, parents, community members, and business representatives in establishing academic and other performance objectives of the school for each academic excellence indicator adopted in the Texas Education Code (TEC). [See AE(LOCAL), BQB(LEGAL), BQB(LOCAL), TEC Section 11.251 Planning and Decision-Making Process, and TEC Section 39.051 Academic Excellence Indicators.]

    The SDMC must be involved in decisions related to areas specified by the TEC. [See TEC Section 11.251 Planning and Decision-Making Process and TEC Section 11.253 Campus Planning and Site-Based Decision-Making.] The areas that require involvement of the SDMC are:

    • Implementing all pertinent campus-level planning processes;
    • Developing recommendations for the school budget;
    • Submitting recommendations for the school curriculum;
    • Recommending changes in the school’s staffing patterns;
    • Developing and approving the campus staff development plans;
    • Developing, reviewing, and revising the School Improvement Plan (SIP) for the purpose of improving student performance for all student populations. After the principal approves the SIP, the SDMC will present the plan to the school-based professional staff for a vote of approval. [See BQB1(REGULATION)]
    • Reviewing and making recommendations regarding the school’s organizational structure; and
    • Establishing procedures to periodically obtain broad based community, parent, and staff input



    The committee is an advisory group to the school principal except for campus staff development. The committee must outline procedures for addressing the areas of involvement listed at RESPONSIBILITIES above and for decision-making. The principal will consult the SDMC in matters relating to the school educational program, but the principal has the final authority in fiduciary and financial decisions. [See BQB(LOCAL)]
