• SAC is part of the process for developing and writing the SIP, but not the sole agent. The SAC is the approving agent at the school level.
  • Please note that the membership requirements for SAC (per state statute) are that 51% of the members cannot be employees of the School District. So all Broward schools should select YES. Put N/A in the justification box. 
  • The primary role of SAC is to assist in the development of the SIP and to monitor the implementation of the School Improvement Plan. The membership is representative of the school and community and includes the Principal, teachers, community partners, and parents …. It meets monthly to hear subcommittee reports and make decisions as to whether SIP plan modifications need to be made. If revisions are made to SIP strategies or the SIP budget, they need to be discussed and noted in the minutes. 
  • A requirement for all DA schools should include a Differentiated Accountability update on every SAC meeting agenda. Keep a binder at the school with the 7 sections of the Strategies and Support for Differentiated Accountability (Differentiated Accountability Checklist) and add documentation throughout the year.
