What is the SAC Committee?
The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a team of people representing various segments of the community–parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business/ industry people and other interested community members.
What do they do?
SAC members gather to discuss the school’s academic plan and progress. A School Improvement Plan containing specific objectives and action steps for achieving Florida's educational goals is required by Florida. The SAC has the primary responsibility for monitoring the implementation of the annual SIP. The SIP must be approved by the School Board. The SAC committee assists the school principal with budget and recommendations on how school monies are spent or allocated.
How can parents get involved and participate in the SAC committee?
Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the SAC committee at their child’s school.
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.
