SBDM Council Elections—Make Your Vote Count!?

SBDM council parent representative elections will take place in most of our schools this month or next and present an incredible opportunity for you to become involved in your child’s school.  SBDM councils have school-level authority to make impactful decisions involving curriculum, instruction, budget, personnel, and scheduling, as well as responsibility for facility-management and student-related issues.  As a parent, your vote has the potential to dramatically impact your child’s education, as those elected will share in policy decisions that affect many aspects of student learning.

Participating in our SBDM elections is crucial, but there are also other ways that you can become involved.  Communicate with the parent council members; they represent you!   Share feedback and your views on the important decisions that they face.  You might also consider volunteering as a committee member. All schools have committees that work on specific issues including curriculum, discipline, and facilities. These groups make reports and recommendations to the SBDM council for policy consideration and provide a way for you to become involved on issues that are of particular interest to you.  Or how about running for the SBDM council?  Parents can nominate themselves or be nominated by someone at the school.  Check with your child’s school for election information or contact your school principal with further questions. 

Please know that you can make a difference in your child’s education.  Decades of research studies show that when parents are involved, students have increased motivation, improved self-esteem, better attendance and higher grades.  When schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits:  parents become empowered,   teacher morale improves, schools are more effective and communities grow stronger.   And, most importantly, students perform better in school and in life.
