School Accountability Committee

Our School Accountability Committee (SAC), which is comprised of three parents, school administrators, one teacher and a community representative, provide feedback regarding our school goals and priorities. We meet after school as a team four times a year for approximately one hour. While the number of formal SAC positions are limited, all parents are welcome to attend meetings. Please see future blog posts for meeting dates.

The S.A.C. ensures the community has a voice in the school and that students and staff are supported.
