SBDM Council


School-Based Decision Making Council

Burlington Elementary School’s School-Based Decision Making Council (S.B.D.M. Council) is comprised of teachers, parents and the building principal. This council is the decision-making body for Burlington Elementary School. With the exception of the principal, the council members are elected for a one year term.

The S.B.D.M. Council meets the second Tuesday of each month from 5:00 – 7:00 pm in the Library.  Meetings are open to the public (except issues which require Closed Sessions such as personnel decisions.). Parents/Guardians are encouraged to attend.

The S.B.D.M. Council establishes policies and standards for Burlington School through committee input. Committees are comprised of parents and teachers. A wide variety of committees are in place, some yearly, others to address a specific concern. It is important that parents and teachers support the Council by serving on committees whenever possible. For further information about the S.B.D.M. Council and/or specific committees, contact the school or a council member.
