• The School Based Planning and Shared Decision Making Plan (also called the Herricks Site Based Plan) has been developed by individuals who represent diverse constituent groups which share the desire to provide an excellent education for all children in the Herricks School District.  The development of this Plan has led to the understanding that in order for success to be assured, the participants must remain sensitive to the ever-changing needs of the educational community.  Therefore, this Plan provides a mechanism for adapting to these changes.

    The Commissioner’s Regulation CR100.11 states that the purpose of the school-based planning and shared decision making shall be to improve the educational performance of all students in the schools, regardless of such factors as socio-economic status, race, sex, language background, or disability. The plan will be reviewed biennially by the School Based Planning and Shared Decision Making Coordinating Council.

    In accordance with the Commissioner’s Regulation CR100.11, the charge to this School Based Planning and Shared Decision Making committee was to develop a district plan that would specify:

    1. The manner and extent of the expected involvement of all parties.
    1. The means by which all parties will be held accountable for their decisions.
    1. The "educational issues" which will be subject to cooperative planning and shared decision making at the building level.
    1. The means and standards by which all parties shall evaluate improvement in student achievement.
    1. The manner in which all State and Federal requirements for the involvement of parents in planning and decision making will be coordinated with, and met, by the overall plan.
    1. The process in which disputes about the educational issues being decided upon will be resolved at the local level.
