• 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.
