Well, you may be equal, but I bet the principal still earns more! <g>
In Kentucky, we have School Based Decision Baking Councils. These SBDM
Councils are made up of an administrator, 2 teachers elected by the
teachers, and 2 parents, elected by the parents. There are as many
committees as are needed to address needs (we have around a dozen...
curriculum, communication, technology, budget, etc..) Committees are made
up of any interested people, including teachers, administrators, parents,
even students. Issues come before the SBDM, they are sent to the
appropriate committee which is REQUIRED to get input from all parents,
students, and staff and make recomendations to the SBDM. Anyone is welcome
to come to the SBDM meetings twice a month and speak. When a policy is set
by the SBDM, it is the law.
