The School-Based Decision-Making Council is a group of Peabody’s administrators, teachers, staff, parents and community members, who meet several times each school year to discuss issues of importance to our school and students. Topics covered include:
- School programs
- Social or learning climate
- Title I budget
This year’s council members are: Melanie Nelson (principal), Christopher Jones (professional counselor), Sandra Hamer (PLC coach), Donna Wilkes (general office secretary), Audrey Farmer (teacher and MEA rep), Brooke Hyman (representative of school adopter) Jenni Pappas and Tara Harris (parents).
Jenni and Tara want to represent the parent body well. If you have questions or concerns that you would like the council to address, please email them to Jenni and/or Tara. While they cannot guarantee that the SBDMC will be able to address every issue, they’ll do their best to route your concerns to the appropriate people who might be able to help, and follow up with you afterward. Anonymous comments cannot be accepted, but if your concern is of a sensitive nature, and you do not wish your name to be brought up in the SBDMC’s discussion, please indicate that in your message, and Jenni will handle your concerns accordingly.
