Site-Based Decision Making (SBDM) Council

Our SBDM Council has elected to change our current schedule from a six-period day to a seven-period day to (a) reduce class sizes and (b) offer more related arts and core-content elective courses for students. We see this as the next great step at making learning time more meaningful and individualized with the smaller class sizes. We are also excited to provide a range of related arts and electives (taught by core content teachers) to make learning more exciting and aligned with developing the IB learner profile of all our students.

The Highland SBDM Council regularly meets on the second Wednesday of every month (except June & July) in the library from 2:45-4:00. The Highland SBDM Council is a policy-making body that oversees administrative policies, staffing and budget. Your SBDM parent representative can be another resource for you to share ways you would like to see Highland continuously improve.

You may contact your SBDM Parent representatives: Tiffany Baker (tiffany1576@gmail.com), Joy Jacobs-Lawson (jmjaclaw@gmail.com), Ollie Parker (okparker@gmail.com), and Cristy Plank (plankhome@gmail.com).

Your teacher and administrative representatives are: Thomas Aberli, Janae Bartleson, Philip Dunnagan, Tua Gravatte, Tamira Kimbley, Jean Maclean, Mark Mina, and Christel Todd-Lanier.
