School Accountability Committee


SAC Bylaws 2019-2020



SAC RESPONSIBILITIES

The SAC is an advisory committee, not a governing body, that advises the principal on school performance, budget priorities and parental engagement. The purpose of the committee is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. Each SAC is comprised of parents, community members, principals and teachers.

Topics discussed at SAC include:

  • Parent Engagement
  • School Specific Budget Priorities
  • School Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)

The Education Accountability Act of 2009 SB 09-163 and the Rules for the Administration of Statewide Accountability Measures (Updated April 11, 2013) state that the SAC shall have the following powers and duties:

Making recommendations to the principal on the school priorities for spending school moneys, including federal funds, where applicable.
