The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) offers several school-based decision making (SBDM) training modules at no cost to Kentucky's schools and districts. For more detailed information on each KDE module, as well as other KDE-approved SBDM training modules that are offered by individuals and organizations outside of the KDE, please review the SBDM Training Modules Flyer.
Each module that is offered by KDE can be found below, as well as all accompanying materials.
