What Is the School Advisory Council’s Job?
The School Improvement and Education Accountability system, which includes the SAC, sets up priorities and student performance standards that serve as guiding principles for everything the council does. The School Advisory Council will examine aspects of its school as suggested by the priorities and generate a School Improvement Plan (SIP) that addresses targeting the identified priorities and meeting the student performance standards.
The council must consider what is known about its school and decide which areas need improvement. An analysis of student achievement and school performance data should occur. Then the SAC must decide which needs are most important and pressing. The group will develop strategies—the “how-to” for improving the areas most important to their school—and decide how to measure the results of the strategies they plan to implement.
At the end of this process, the SAC will have created the SIP, which addresses issues relative to budget, training, instructional materials, technology, staffing, student support services, school safety, discipline strategies, student health and fitness, indoor environmental air quality, and matters of resource allocation.
