    School Advisory Council (SAC?

    School Improvement is an absolute priority for all Broward schools. To make it happen, every school has a School Advisory Council which studies the school's track record and comes up with an annual plan to improve education in vital areas such as: student achievement, curriculum, safety and discipline. These plans are on file at every school. Call us if you would like to be a part of this great team. The School Advisory Council represents various stakeholders in our community including parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business partners and other interested community members.
