In Colorado, it is a statutory requirement for every school to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC). The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes.
The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround plan, and meets at least quarterly to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to the school’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education.
The SAC also makes recommendations to the principal for prioritizing spending of school moneys. The principal shall consider the SAC recommendations regarding spending state, federal, local, or private grants, and any other discretionary moneys and take them into account in formulating budget requests for presentation to the Board of Education. Final decision-making authority rests with the principal or other person or group receiving the recommendation from the SAC (e.g., The Governing Board).
SAC meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6pm in the library.
