School Advisory Committee (SAC)

  • School Advisory Council

    Florida Law Section 1001.452(1)(a) states that every school must have a School Advisory Council (SAC) composed of parents, students, business partners, community members, support staff, teachers, and the principal.  SAC members work collaboratively to:

    • Analyze relevant data to determine school improvement priorities. 
    • Assist in the development, implementation, support, and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
    • Contribute in the decision-making process and approval of expenditures to the annual school budget, School Recognition Funds, and funds specifically designated for SAC to support SIP initiatives.


    Membership and Election

    Each school’s SAC should be a balanced number of stakeholders that reflect the ethnic, racial and economic makeup of the school.  Florida law also states that the majority (over 50 percent) of SAC members must not be employed by the school district.  


    Each group of stakeholders (parents, students, teachers, support staff) shall be elected by their respective peer groups at the school.



    Mangrove Bay Middle School's Health and Wellness Leadership Academy's SAC will start in the Fall of 2024.  Mangrove Bay families should expect information about SAC at the start of the school year.
