Site based planning and shared decision making is a process designed to involve parents, teachers, and administrators in making shared decisions. Its purpose is to improve schools in a framework of trust and collaboration among staff, parents, Board of Education, and the community.

The main goal is to improve student achievement and student success within the overall educational experience. A secondary goal is to strengthen community support by fostering greater public involvement in the schools.

Site based planning and shared decision making is a partnership. The Site Based Team will be involved in significant decisions about their schools. The process provides for collaboration in decision making and for shared responsibility and authority for school improvement at the building level.

At the same time, the sharing of authority and responsibility in this plan shall not diminish the ability of the Board of Education, Superintendent, or Building Principals to fulfill their legal responsibilities for the supervision and management of the school district or building.

Please feel free to contact any SBT member if you have any questions or concerns or if you would like the Wellwood SBT to discuss issues relevant to our mission.

Meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of each month at 2:50 p.m. in the Wellwood conference room.
