What is a School Advisory Council?

The School Advisory Council (SAC) is composed of the principal and a balanced number of teachers, other school staff members, students, and parents, along with business and community people, who are representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic community served by the school so that all groups of the school community have a voice in school improvement. They are either elected or appointed to form the SAC for the school.

 

What is the purpose of School Advisory Council?

The SAC represents the school community as the means for school improvement. The SAC’s primary role is to assist the principal in developing and evaluating the school improvement plan (SIP) in order to help students achieve success.

 

In addition, the SAC advises the principal in the preparation of the school’s budget. The efforts of the SAC are always focused on improving student achievement.

How can I become a part of SAC?

Please contact the principal, assistant principal, or SAC chair to indicate your interest in being a part of the committee. New members are welcome to join in the fall, but by the November meeting, the SAC roster is formed based on the set criteria. However, attendance is required at all subsequent monthly meetings and a quorum is needed for voting and approving the budget. So please remain committed to helping improve Wekiva High School throughout the entire school year.

Meetings are currently held in the Administration Building Conference Room on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 PM immediately preceding the PTSA meeting. SAC begins with the principal’s report.

School Improvement Plan

The first task in the school improvement process is the formation of the SAC in the early fall followed by the development of the school improvement plan (SIP). The most critical elements of the planning process include developing the plan, implementing the plan, and evaluating the plan.

 

The specific steps for the development of a strategic SIP include the following:

· Create a vision for Wekiva High School

· Conduct a needs assessment

· Develop 5-year objectives based on the OCPS vision and mission

· Determine annual objectives and select supporting conditions

· Create action plans

· Complete the final version of the plan

· Share the school improvement plan

· Gain approval of the plan

 

The SAC has a very important role to play in the development and evaluation of the plan. The role of the SAC in the planning process is to help set the vision and priorities for the school; however, it is the responsibility of the school principal and staff to implement the plan and run the school.
