School Based Planning shifts decision-making authority from school districts to individual schools. Teams of administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, support staff, parents, and community members are empowered to make decisions regarding the instructional program of the school.
School-Based Planning Teams (SBPT) must focus on improving student performance and meeting the targets set in the school improvement plan in accordance with the District’s performance benchmarks. Issues unrelated to student improvements are not the responsibility of the School-Based Planning Team (e.g. parking, maintenance of grounds, copier, etc.).
