The Manhasset School District is looking for volunteers to join the Shared Decision Making (SDM) teams for each of the individual elementary schools and for the Manhasset secondary school. SDM was developed to transform school organizations into learning communities, facilitating effective communication amongst its members. The team is comprised of administrators, faculty, support staff, parents and in the case of the secondary school team, students. Members serve for two-year terms. The goal of SDM is to improve student performance. Topics and agendas are established through consensus. Responsibilities of members include mandatory attendance at monthly meetings, communication among the team, the stakeholder group, and the executive SCA, and the ability to dedicate a limited amount of time to the efforts being put forth.
