Welcome to American Academy’s School Accountability Committee (SAC)
Meetings held on the 1st Monday of each month at 4:30pm
In Colorado, it is a statutory requirement for every school to have a School Accountability Committee(SAC). The purpose of the SAC is to provide opportunities for parents, staff, and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of their individual school’s instruction programs along with being a representative voice for the community. They make recommendations to the American Academy Executive Director of Schools on the school-wide action planning and goals for improvement, as well as the school budgeting process.
Created by state statue in the 1970’s, these committees are comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community members. The focus of this committee is to inform, encourage, and provide opportunities for all stakeholders to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes.
School Accountability Committee (SAC) should:
  • represent the community point of view
  • make recommendations and/or give advice to the principal
  • focus on needs and concerns of the school’s community
  • review various components of the school program and advise the principal as to how well these meet the school and community needs
  • designate a representative to the District Advisory Committee
  • adopt by-laws consistent with the District’s organizational guidelines
  • conduct a regular needs assessments/survey for the formulation of school improvement goals
  • cooperatively develop areas of study based upon school baseline data and school profile information
  • help in the development and implementation of the school improvement plan
  • serve to facilitate the communications to the community and to the District Accountability Committee
  • meet other requirements as indicated in state law
  • meet on a monthly basis at a time when the majority of all members of the community can attend
  • open its meetings to the public, and publish the time, date and location of the meetings
