SBDM Bylaws and Policies
This three-hour experienced member course parallels the in-person training developed by Kentucky Department of Education and fulfills the training requirement for experienced SBDM members.

The course contains lessons, assessments, reflections and questions; a certificate is issued once all course criteria are met at the end of the course. This course is available from July 1 – June 30 each school year, with all coursework for that term to be completed by June 30th.
