School Accountability Committee

School Accountability

The District Accountability Committee is an advisory committee to the Board of Education, composed of parents, teachers, DCSD staff and community members. The DAC advises the Board of Education regarding spending priorities, and collects feedback from School Accountability Committees. School Accountability Committee members work closely with principals, helping to guide budgetary and other decision-making at the school. Each SAC works to increase parent engagement and provide feedback to District leaders. Click here for SAC information, responsibilities and helpful tips to increase parent involvement.
