This resource guide is intended to assist local Texas school districts in the implementation of site-based decision-making and in the development of district and campus plans that will result in improved student performance. This document includes information on site-based decision-making and suggestions for developing district and campus plans.

Also included are a comparison of site-based decision-making to traditional decision-making, the legislative requirements for site-based decision-making, and a bibliography of journal articles, books, and other professional sources on site-based decision-making. With the exception of the citations of law and the required procedures for submission of the district plan for site-based decision-making to the commissioner of education, no other part of this document is intended as a mandate or state prescription. Appended are sources of support in implementing site-based decision-making, a calendar of professional development events, excerpts of law related to site-based decision-making and planning, and correspondence from the Texas Education Agency on the subject.
