What is a SAC?

A School Accountability Committee (SAC) is a requirement at every school. The purpose of the SAC is to information, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement process. We will meet four times throughout the year.

ACE Work Experience at Eagle -  How it works:

All students are placed in ACE (work experience) for the first two weeks of the quarter.

Students who submit the Training Agreement and Workman Compensation forms during the first two weeks (by April 23), will remain in ACE for the remainder of the quarter.

The Training Agreement and Workman Compensation forms are available online (click here) and in the office.

Students who don’t submit both forms during the first two weeks will be dropped from ACE and may re-enroll next quarter.

ACE is a Pass/Fail class.

Students who Fail ACE two quarters in one year will not be allowed to be in it the following quarter.

Students on Academic Leave must pass ACE to be allowed to return to Eagle.

Credits are awarded as follows: 90 work hours = .25 credit, 180 works hours = .5 credit, 360 work hours = 1 credit.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
