SBDM Elections


Serving on the School-Based Decision Making Council is one way to get more involved in your child's school. SBDM is the governing body that determines school policy for curriculum, staffing, discipline, scheduling, instructional practices, extracurricular activities, and other matters pertinent to the operation of the school.


A council is made up of elected parents, teachers, counselors and principals. The term typically runs July 1 through June 30.


To qualify to run, you must be a parent, stepparent, foster parent or legal guardian of a student attending the school during the term of office. (You are ineligible if you are an employee or a relative of an employee of that school or the district office, or you're a school board member or the spouse of a school board member.)


Elections will be held prior to the spring program on Thursday, April 20th from 5:30 - 6:30 pm and before the May PTA meeting on Thursday, May 11th from 7:30 am - 8:00 am.  All parents of students registered to attend VPE next year are eligible to vote. Two parent representatives must be chosen each year.
