District Site-Based Decision Making Committee

The Culberson County- lSD District Site-Based Decision Making Committee meets three times a year. All meetings are open to the public, and parents and community members are encouraged to participate.

They were to include superintendents, district and campus staff, principals, teachers, parents, and business and community representatives- all of whom would have an equal vote on decisions made by the Committees.
