|What Is a School Advisory Council?|
The School Advisory Council (SAC) at Plumb Elementary is a team of people representing various segments of the community which includes: parents, teachers, administrators, support staff, and community members. The purpose of a SAC is to assist in the preparation and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
School Improvement is dependent upon data-driven decision making. Our School Advisory Council reviews relevant data, identifies problem areas, develops improvement strategies, monitors their implementation, and then starts the whole process over when the next round of data is available.
Each school in the State of Florida must have a SAC. By law, each SAC must be composed of the principal and an appropriately balanced number of stakeholders. These individuals should be a representative of the ethnic, racial and economic makeup of the community served by the school. The majority of SAC members (over 50 percent) must not be employed by the school district.
