    Mrs. Defant, Directora

     ¿Qué es un consejo asesor escolar?

     El Consejo Asesor Escolar (SAC) es un grupo escolar destinado que representar a la escuela, la comunidad y las personas más cercanas a los estudiantes. El grupo comparte la responsabilidad de guiar a la escuela hacia la mejora continua.

    El Consejo Asesor Escolar es responsable de la toma de decisiones finales en la escuela en relación con la implementación de las disposiciones del Plan de Mejoramiento Escolar (SIP) anual. SAC asiste en la preparación y evaluación anual tanto del SIP como del presupuesto anual de la escuela.


     ¿Quién forma parte del Consejo Asesor Escolar?

    Es un requisito que la mayoría de los miembros del Consejo Asesor Escolar sean personas que no estén empleadas por el distrito escolar.  SAC debe estar compuesto por el director y un número adecuadamente equilibrado de maestros, empleados de apoyo educativo, padres y otros ciudadanos comerciales y comunitarios que sean representativos de la comunidad étnica, racial y económica a la que sirve la escuela. Ciertos miembros son elegidos por sus compañeros, mientras que los miembros de la comunidad y las empresas son designados y el director sirve automáticamente.

    2020-2021 School Advisory Council

    If you are interested in serving on our School Advisory Council, please let us know! Click here to join:

    Currently our plan is to meet virtually (via Zoom) monthly. The dates and times will be determined by the consensus of the group.

    If you are interested, please call the school or email at by Friday, September 18th so we can compile our ballot.

    Also, if you know of any businesses or community organizations that would be interested, encourage them to contact us.


    Mrs. Defant, Principal

    What is a School Advisory Council? 

    The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a school-based group intended to represent the school, the community, and those persons closest to the students. The group shares responsibility for guiding the school toward continuous improvement.

    What is the role of the School Advisory Council? 

    The School Advisory Council is responsible for final decision making at the school relating to the implementation of the provisions of the annual School Improvement Plan (SIP). The SAC assists in the annual preparation and evaluation of both the SIP and the school’s annual budget.

    Who serves on the School Advisory Council? 

    It is a requirement that the majority of the members of the School Advisory Council are persons who are not employed by the school district. A SAC should be composed of the principal and an appropriately balanced number of teachers, education support employees, parents, and other business and community citizens who are representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic community served by the school. Certain members are elected by their peers, while business and community members are appointed, and the principal automatically serves.

    Information about Referendum Funds - Please watch the video below:

    The Referendum is up for renewal. Referendum funds boost reading, music and art programs; provide up-to-date technology and textbooks; and help recruit and retain quality teachers.

    Community members and families recognize the importance of the Referendum. Pinellas County voters have supported the renewal of the half-mill property tax every four years since it was first approved in 2004. An independent committee oversees the distribution of funds to ensure that money is spent as voters intended.

    The Referendum:

    • Helps recruit and retain quality teachers: Eighty percent of the Referendum revenue supplements teacher salaries. This year, each teacher receives a salary supplement of $5,231 as part of their base salary.
    • Supports all students through new or expanded classroom libraries, additional supplies, increased training opportunities for teachers, and updated computers and technology.
    • Funds intensive small-group literacy programs that help students read at grade level, instrument rental fees for students that can't afford them, and paid admission for field trips to museums and art galleries.
    • Provides all schools with equitable funding for quality art supplies, equipment and technology that help students produce strong and award-winning works of art.
    • Supplies music, theater and dance equipment, technology, sound systems, uniforms and materials that support award-winning performing arts programs.

    Rest assured, we will continue to follow the CDC's guidance on providing care to youth. The protocols as they stand today include verbal wellness checks, temperature taking and appropriate distancing.

Should you wish to pay via another method of payment, you may visit our School Age Program office to pay prior to the schedule draft processing. Parents may also pay their balance ahead via their online account.

    In order to avoid a disruption in services, all outstanding balances must be paid in full prior to beginning the 20/21 school year program.

    *Vacation weeks apply to eligible plans. Grand and subsidy recipients must adhere to the requirements of the grant or subsidy to with they receive.
