The District Accountability Committee (DAC) helps to collect feedback from School Accountability Committees and then advises the Board of Education regarding spending priorities.

In Colorado, it is a statutory requirement for every school district to have a District Accountability Committee (DAC). The committee is made up of parents, teachers, DCSD staff, and community members and serves in an advisory capacity to the Douglas County School District Board of Education.

The District Accountability Committee (DAC) meets monthly throughout the year and makes recommendations to the Board regarding spending District money, charter school applications, improvement plans and parent engagement plans. The committee's members also make recommendations for areas and issues for study, as well as teacher and principal assessment tools.

DAC values ongoing feedback from each school’s School Accountability Committee (SAC) and provides training and information SACs can share with each school community.
