District Site-Based Decision Making Committee
Waller Independent School District
The Waller ISD District Site-Based Decision Making Committee meets three to four times a year. All meetings are open to the public, and parents and community members are encouraged to participate. If you would like to be a part of this important district committee, call (936) 931-3685. If you would like to be a member of a campus site-based committee, view the schools listing and contact the school principal.
Texas Senate Bill 1, passed in May 1995, established District Site-Based Decision Making Committees to give support and direction to Campus Site Based Decision Making Committees and to serve as a central gathering and evaluation point for information coming from those Campus Committees.
Senate Bill 1 also mandated the makeup of all Committees, both at the campus and district level. 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.
Site-Based Decision Making Committees offer more participation opportunities for parents and community members; and the number of different perspectives, experiences, and interests brought to the Committees by such a varied group creates an ideal environment for making the best decisions possible for Waller ISD students.
