School District Owned Membership (SDM):

A membership that is owned by a school district (or state agency) in the name of an individual. This membership can be transferred to another employee in the same membership category if the original member/person leaves the district. SDM allows you to group all of your memberships together so that you can receive one invoice for all of your renewals once or twice a year (or as requested). The SDM is managed by a designated administrator within the school district (or state agency). SDM members still receive all the same benefits of individual membership.
