SDM Collaboration Council
Open to the public
The SDM Collaboration Council (formerly known as the District Advisory Committee) is a representative body comprised of individuals serving on the Shared Decision Making teams of each of the four schools in the district. Principals, teachers, support staff, parents, and students are involved in significant decisions about their schools through the work of the various SDM teams. Through the SDM Collaboration Council an opportunity for collaboration in decision making and shared responsibility for improvement district-wide is facilitated. School-based SDM teams collaborate in identifying educational issues, defining goals, formulating and implementing decisions, and evaluating the success of those decisions in helping students reach higher standards of excellence. Important information and initiatives from the various SDM teams are brought to the SDM Collaboration Council for discussion and review and, similarly, ideas for future initiatives will be discussed and forwarded to the school-based teams for review and any appropriate action.

We plan to build relationships with all sectors of the community to help prevent the abuse of drugs by our youth. It is important for many people to convince the youth in our community that the risks associated with drug use are not worth taking, and that they can make more positive alternative choices. Specific goals for the meeting will include the following:

    1) To review findings from a student assessment survey and focus group discussions.
    2) To review the district initiatives related to substance abuse
    3) To review current substance abuse information from a law enforcement perspective
