School Advisory Councils (SACs)

What Are SACs?

SACs are peer-elected, collaborative teams composed of family members, the school principal, teachers or other school-based staff, students (for schools with grades 7 – 12), and community members. SACs champion the work for improved student achievement, effective teaching in the classroom, parent and community engagement in the educational process, and communication and support between home and school. SAC meetings must be held at least every other month, and SACs must have data-driven, strategic conversations that center on the three primary focus areas for SACs.

Why SACs Work

The philosophy behind School Advisory Councils is that when parents/family members are engaged in their student’s school, academic achievement improves. SACs provide a structure for partnerships between the school and community to be built and then implemented in an intentional, action-oriented, and genuinely accountable manner. Principals, teachers, and school staff share information pertinent to students’ academic success, and parents and community members provide critical feedback informed by their parental perspectives and unique expertise. With all voices and viewpoints at the table, the SACs are well-informed, site-specific, and innovative vehicles for academic transformation in all schools.
