School-Based Decision Making Council

Any aspects of CMMS are governed by a School-Based Decision Making council. The council consists of four teachers and three parents all elected by their peers on a yearly basis. The council is chaired by the principal. Council meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 4:00 pm in the school media center and are open to the public, except where executive sessions are allowed by Kentucky law. Councils make the policy in the areas of:

  • Curriculum
  • Staff assignment
  • Student assignment
  • School schedule
  • School space
  • Instructional practices
  • Discipline/classroom management
  • Extracurricular programs
  • Standards alignment
  • Committee participation
  • Hiring (the principal makes hiring recommendations to the superintendent after consulting with the council. The council recommends to the superintendent who should be hired as principal.)
  • The council adopts the school budget and makes decisions regarding a portion of teacher professional development.
