Campus Leadership Team (CLT)

  • Attention Parents, community members, business members, and district level professionals:

    At the campus level, the SBDM committee is known as the Campus Leadership Team (CLT). The purpose of the CLT is to develop campus improvement plans, analyze student performance, approve professional development of the campus and serve as an advisory role in terms of budget, planning, school organization, staffing patterns, and curriculum. The CLT needs to meet at least four times a year and maintain meeting notes, agendas and sign-in sheets (which represent the attendees by name and role). The CLT composition should include at least one parent (that is not a Hays Employee), one community member who resides in the district, one business member, a minimum of four classroom teachers, one non-teaching campus based professional employee and one district-level professional staff member.

    If you are interested in serving on the Simon CLT, please email your full name and contact information to the SMS principal.

    Thank you!


    Indepth informaton about the Hays CLT: 

    The Campus Leadership Team (CLT) shall be established on each campus to serve in an advisory role to the principal in the planning, operation, supervision, and evaluation of the campus educational program. The CLT serves exclusively in an advisory role in decisions in the areas of planning, budgeting, curriculum, staffing patterns, and school organization except that each committee shall approve staff development of a campus nature.

    Principals are encouraged to have an ad-hoc committee develop the campus improvement plan which is then reviewed, revised, and approved by the campus leadership team. The campus improvement plan is the guide to improving student performance for all student populations with respect to the academic excellence indicators and any other appropriate performance measures for special needs populations.

    CLT members should consist of representatives from the teachers, support staff, parents, community, and businesses. Two-thirds of the members are required to be classroom teachers and at least one parent, community member, and business representative are to be included. The principal should also be on the committee, but is encouraged to select a chairperson to facilitate the meetings or have the committee elect a chair. Staff positions may be designated by grade level, department, team, or whatever unit the campus decides. The principal will establish the nomination process for staff positions and parent/community/business positions may be filled by appointment by the principal. Members from these different groups may volunteer to serve.

    Below are guidelines that will assist CLTs in leading productive meetings:

    • Agendas should address school-wide issues.
    • Written requests for agenda items should be submitted to the CLT at least five days prior to the meeting.
    • The facilitator and principal will draft the agenda together.
    • Minutes will be kept and sent to all staff and CLT members by email, or print, and posted on the district website.
    • Members are encouraged to send a substitute for the group they represent if they are unable to attend a meeting.
    • Meetings will be held a minimum of four times per year.
    • DLT minutes will be shared and reviewed.
    • Quarterly budget updates, curriculum, AEIS data, program reviews, and effective teaching practices shall be items discussed in CLT meetings, but not necessarily on every agenda.
