• School Advisory Council - SAC

    What is SAC?

    SAC is the School Advisory Council. This is a team of people representing various segments of the community- parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business/industry as well as other interested community members.

    Each Florida school is required by law to have a SAC. Each of the above mentioned individuals are known as stakeholders. These stakeholders are individuals representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic makeup of the school's community. Each SAC is responsible for strategic planning for their school's improvement.
