Nominate SBDM

Each year, two parents and three teachers are elected in May to serve as SBDM Council members for Ludlow High School.  As school populations diversify, the state requires that the SBDM Council mirror the student demographics.  When the minority population of a school exceeds 8% of total enrollment, state law requires that a minority member must be elected to Council.  This school year, we have exceeded this percentage and must add a minority parent member to our Council to ensure minority representation.

 

Anyone interested in nominating himself/herself as a minority member of the Ludlow High School SBDM Council, please submit your name to the high school office no later than October 24.  An election for the new parent representative on Council will take place at the PTO bonfire on the evening of Thursday, October 26 at the softball field.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office through e-mail or by phone (859-261-8211).
