School Accountability Committee (SAC)

    Colorado state law (CRS 22-11-401) requires every school to have 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 (CRS 22-11-402).

    Primary Roles of SAC

    • ​Advise and make recommendations to the principal concerning school performance and/or the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).
    • 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.
    • Review budget proposals and make recommendations to the principal regarding school spending priorities.
    • Assisting the district in implementing, at the school level, the district’s family engagement policy.
    • 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 regularly during the school year on the 3rd Monday (if holiday, then adjusted to 2nd Monday) of the month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Foothill library:
