School Accountability Committee (SAC)

School Accountability Committee (SAC)

What is SAC?

The State of Colorado requires all schools to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC).

Comprised of the school’s director, teachers, staff, parents and community members, SAC serves in an advisory role to the director and board of directors regarding the school’s academic performance.

What Does SAC Do?

Based on state and district policies, a SAC is asked to perform the following:

  • Make recommendations regarding spending priorities
  • Provide input to the state required school Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
  • Meet at least quarterly to discuss the implementation of the school’s improvement plan and review the school’s performance against the plan
  • Provide input regarding the director’s development plan and evaluation
  • Help increase the level of parent engagement within the school community

How Does SAC Do This?

Here at RMAE, SAC meets monthly to help achieve its stated goals. With the use of the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) and the RMAE Surveys (parent, staff and student), SAC is able to create yearly goals and objectives, as well as provide recommendations to the director and board of directors regarding the school’s performance.

SAC Membership

RMAE parents and staff are encouraged to join SAC. New positions are available each spring, and terms are two years in length. A member can serve no more than two consecutive terms (4 years), however a member can return to serve again in future years.

SAC Meetings

All SAC meetings are open to the public. We encourage teachers, staff members and parents to join our meetings at any time. Each meeting begins with the opportunity for open comment, providing the chance for anyone to express an opinion or concern.

It is required by the state that all SACs post their meeting times, agendas and meeting minutes. Please refer to the RMAE website and calendar for this information.
