Site-Based Management Team
Between 1994 and 1996, San Juan Unified School District offered the opportunity for schools to be self-managed. Orangevale Open K-8 opted to take advantage of that and created the Site-Based Management Team (which serves as the School Site Council).
The Site-Based Management Team (SBMT) is the primary leadership and decision-making body for Orangevale Open K-8. The SBMT acts as a clearinghouse for school-wide policy decisions that have their foundation in student and community learning. All community groups have access to the SBMT through their corresponding community representatives.
The Site-Based Management Guidelines, created concurrently with the SBMT, outline student, parent, and teacher roles, the organization of our school, responsibilities of classroom officers, and other guiding principles. The Orangevale Open Site-Based Guidelines provide the structure for the program to operate.
