Shared Decision Making

What is Shared Decision Making?

Shared decision making is driven by the belief that the most effective choices are made when those affected by the decisions are involved in the decision making process.  It is a process by which members of an educational community cooperate in identifying and implementing activities to advance and improve learning.  This process is used to assist with the realization of programs, services, collaboratively deciding on issues and resolving problems.  The goal is to utilize the expertise and perspective of representatives to guide and shape decisions that positively impact student outcomes. 

To be successful, shared decision making requires commitment, time, and hard work.  Success requires that trust be established and communication maintained.  The key to a successful shared decision making team is having all members committed to working together in a positive way to solve the issues of the school, lending greater success for all students.  Shared decision making is a process not a quick fix.

What can be discussed at a Share Decision Making Committee meeting?

The building and district committees are empowered to consider issues related to student performance.  All of the issues should also relate to the District’s vision, mission, goals, and implementation of related objectives. All decisions will be made with regard to federal, state, local laws and policies. Matters of confidentiality involving staff, students, parents, etc. will not be referenced or discussed

 Who can attend a Shared Decision-Making meeting?

All Building Team meetings will be open to stakeholder groups and the public. All visitors to Shared Decision Making meetings shall be non-participating observers. Meeting agendas and minutes will be posted on district and building websites and emailed to all staff members within the building.
