School Advisory Council and School Advisory Forum

  • School Advisory Council (SAC)

    SAC is a committee of parents, community members, and teachers who meet to discuss and monitor our School Improvement Plan. The focus of SAC is primarily student achievement but many issues are discussed that affect the school. SAC has an official elected membership but all are welcome to attend each meeting.

    School Advisory Forum (SAF)

    SAF is an open forum to discuss any school or community issue. While SAC focuses on the School Improvement Plan, SAF is the place to get more information, address any other concerns, or share ideas that impact the school. SAF has no official membership and our SAF meetings are held back to back with our SAC meetings.

     

    How can parents get involved and participate in the SAC/SAF committee?

    Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the SAC/SAF at our school, usually on the first Thursday of each month (see schedule in the left menu).

     

    Why is it important for parents to be active participants?

    • The SAC committee provides a place where parents can voice their opinions and suggestions.  They have an active role in making decisions that will best serve the students.
    • SAC also gives the opportunity for parents to actively participate in setting goals and making plans to achieve those academic goals.
    • SAC allows for parents to identify issues that need to be addressed concerning the school climate.
