Thank you to the parents who have signed up to serve on our SAC (School Advisory Council) team this year. We are, however, in need of more parents to join. Being part of the SAC team is a great way to get involved with our school and to help make school wide decisions.  Our SAC team consists of: SAC Chair:  Ewa Kolk, SAC Secretary Diane Lloyd.  Please contact Dr. Goricki ([email protected]) or Ewa Kolk ([email protected]) if you are interested in becoming a member.  SAC Meetings will be on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Media Center except for in September.  It will be held on September 1 rather than the 8th due to Open House. 

What is a School Advisory Council (SAC)?
A SAC is a diverse group of stakeholders of a school, established through Florida Law, with shared goal of increasing student achievement in a safe learning environment. A SAC is comprised of the Principal, teachers, education support staff, parents, business people and community members. The majority of the members must be non school employees and members must be representative of the community.

What is the role of SAC?
The SAC assists in the preparation and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and acts as a resource to the school principal. The term advisory is intended to mean: inquiring, informing, suggesting, recommending and evaluating.

What is the School Improvement Plan?
“The whole point of school improvement is data-driven decision making. The process is SUPPOSED to be fairly simple and straight forward: The SAC reviews relevant data (which is much more than test scores), identifies problem areas, develops improvement strategies, monitors their implementation, and then starts the whole process over when the next round of data is available.” — KM, DOE Take a look at our 2014-2015 School Improvement Plan:
