School Accountability Committee (SAC)

    Colorado state law requires that every school has an active School Accountability Committee (SAC). The purpose of this representative advisory committee--comprising parents, teachers, principal, PTO and community members--is to look at school goals, drive school improvements in academics and climate, and review school budgets.

    Primary Roles of SAC

    • Advise and make recommendations to the principal concerning school performance and/or the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
    • Review budget proposals and make recommendations to the principal regarding school spending priorities. 
    • Meet at least quarterly to discuss whether school leadership, personnel and infrastructure are advancing or impeding implementation of the school’s performance or improvement plan. 
    • Provide input and recommendations on an advisory basis to the District Accountability Committee (DAC) and BVSD administration concerning principal development plans. 
    • For further details of the role of SAC, please read this comprehensive SAC Handbook, created by BVSD's DAC Communications Subcommittee.​

    The Foothill SAC meets 6-8 times during the school year on the third Tuesday of the month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Foothill library:

    • September 19th, 2017
