School Advisory Council (SAC)

The School Advisory Council (SAC) works collaboratively with the Principal and staff to develop the annual School Improvement Plan (SIP). SAC analyzes relevant data to determine the goals in the plan and how progress toward the goals will be measured. SAC is composed of the Principal and an appropriately balanced team of people with parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business and community members that mirror the ethnic, racial and economic makeup of the school community.

  • Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month
  • Meetings are from 8:30a – 9:30a
