School Advisory Council/School Advisory Forum

  • School Advisory Forum actively participates with the School Advisory Council in identifying the educational needs and priorities of the school.

    Both must use district developed guidelines, adopt procedural bylaws, conduct meetings in accordance with the Florida Sunshine Laws & Robert’s Rules of Order.

    Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the SAC committee at their child’s school.

    Both SAC and SAF must record, maintain, and post minutes of all meetings at the school in accordance with the Florida Sunshine Laws.

    SAC and SAF indicate awareness plans for the school by the signatures of both chairpersons on the budget when it is submitted for district budget preparation.

    Both must use district developed guidelines, adopt procedural bylaws, conduct meetings in accordance with the Florida Sunshine Laws & Robert’s Rules of Order.

    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.
