The principal shall assure that the membership of the school advisory council (SAC) shall be representative of the ethnic, racial and economic community served by the school. Councils shall include parents, teachers, education support employees, students (high schools and academies of technology/skill centers) and business and community members. The principal shall be a member of the SAC. It is recommended that the council consist of no more than 20 members. A majority of the members of each school advisory council must be persons who are not employed by the school district F.S. 1001.452, (1)(a). The teachers should be representative of the faculty, i.e., by grade levels and/or subject areas. The council should be large enough to be representative and small enough to be productive. The larger the SAC, the more difficult it is to get a quorum. A quorum is required to conduct business related to the School Advisory Council.
The officers of a school advisory council shall include, but not be limited to, a chairperson, a vice-chairperson, and a secretary.
The duties of officers shall be established by the school advisory council.
Vacancies on the council after the initial selection shall be filled in the same manner as the original selection process. Member names and race/ethnicity are to be sent to appropriate district staff.
