Shared Decision Making Committee (SDMC)

  • The Houston Independent School District (HISD) Board of Education established and approved the campus-level planning and decision-making process in 1992.  This process includes the creation and maintenance of a Shared Decision Making Committee (SDMC) at each school to review the district's educational goals, objectives, and major district-wide classroom instructional programs.


    The school principal determines the size of the committee. The committee is 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).


    If you are interested in becoming involved, contact the school at (713) 845-7411.
