SBDM Committee

Premont ISD District-Site Based Improvement Committee (SBDM)

Definition of Site Based Decision Making

Site based decision making is a process for decentralizing decisions to improve educational outcomes at every school campus through a collaborative effort by which principals, teachers, support staff, district staff, parents, and community representatives assess educational outcomes of all students, determine goals and strategies, and ensure that strategies are implemented and adjusted to improve student performance.

In compliance with Texas Education Code 11.251, and Premont ISD Board Policy BQA(LOCAL), the district-level site-based decision-making committee shall advise the Board or its designee in establishing and reviewing the District’s educational goals, objectives, and major Districtwide classroom instructional programs identified by the Board or its designee.  The committee shall serve exclusively in an advisory role except that the committee shall approve staff development of a Districtwide nature.


Composition of the Committee

The composition of the committee shall be selected by the district leadership team that will provide adequate representation of the community diversity.   The committee will include at least two parents, two community members, two business representatives and campus representatives selected by each campus.

  • Effective campus and district planning for the purpose of improved student performance;
  • Improved community involvement in the school improvement process;
  • Clearly established accountability parameters for student performance;
  • Raised staff productivity and satisfaction;
  • Improved communication and information flow;
  • Consensus-based, effective decisions;
  • Pervasive and long-range commitment to implementation;
  • Increased flexibility at the campus level in the allocation and use of both human and fiscal resources; and
  • Coordination of “regular” and special programs components.
