District Site-Based Decision Making Committee

District Site-Based Decision Making Committee

Welcome to the Alvarado ISD District Site-Based Decision Making Committee!

Our committee meets about five times a year. All our meetings are open to the public. We encourage parents and members of our community to join us. If you would like to be a part of our committee please call us at 817-783-1040. If you would like to join a campus based-site team, please call your campus principal.

Texas Senate Bill 1, passed in May 1995, established District Site-Based Decision Making Committees to give support and direction to Campus Site-Based Decision Making Committees and to serve as a central gathering and evaluation point for information coming from those Campus Committees.

Senate Bill 1 also mandated the makeup of all Committees, both at the campus and district level. They were to include superintendents, district and campus staff, principals, teachers, parents, and business and community representatives - all of whom would have an equal vote on decisions made by the committees.

Site-Based Decision Making concept offers more participation opportunities for parents and community members; and the number of different perspectives, experiences, and interests brought to the committees by such a varied group creates an ideal environment for making the best decisions possible for Alvarado ISD students.
