The School Accountability Committee (SAC) is mandated by Colorado law and D11 policy as a way to take a look at how each school is run, considering topics such as:
- Enrollment and how school staffing works
- Testing and test scores
- Curriculum and professional development
- Parental engagement
Who serves on a SAC?
The composition of SACs are defined by state law and D11 policy, and includes parents/guardians, principal, staff, and community members. A majority of members, including the chair, are parents/guardians.
In addition to the PTA, SAC is a great way to volunteer at Steele. Our members enjoy getting into the data, understanding how things work behind the scenes at Steele and D11, asking questions, and helping to share the different perspectives we bring. The SAC also works to collaborate with the PTA on areas of overlap.
The SAC meets on the third Tuesday of the month from 5-6pm in the Steele Library on the following dates:
- September 20
- October 18
- November 15
- January 17
- February 21
- March 21
- April 1
Meeting notes will be shared on the Steele website.
Anyone is welcome to join our meetings to see if it’s a fit! You can also contact the SAC Chair, Jessica Gemm, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
