School Accountability Committee (SAC)

The SAC team serves as a venue for parents, teachers and administration to discuss and accomplish goals and objectives set forth by the district, faculty and parents. The SAC team approach is also intended to encourage shared leadership among staff and parents; align faculty committee work with district initiatives; and accomplish goals and objectives with both students' best interests and efficiency as priorities.

Specifically, Jefferson County requires each school to have an organized SAC team which is responsible for taking a role in writing and signing off on the school's Unified Improvement Plan.

SAC is co-facilitated by: Ralston's principal and a parent Chairperson.

SAC members:

  • Any parent wanting to be involved with the SAC team may become a member of SAC. Parents are encouraged to make a commitment to attend as many SAC meetings as possible throughout the year. This consistency facilitates a forum where meaningful, productive discussions add value to the community.
  • Parents are also welcome to attend the SAC meetings on a topical basis as topics that they have an interest in discussing are included on the agenda.
  • Teacher representatives from the primary and intermediate classrooms are recruited by the principal.
  • Education support staff is recruited by the principal.

2017-2018 Goals

The SAC's goals this year include assisting the Principal in completing the Unified Improvement Plan, setting Budget priorities and promoting the awareness of SAC as a venue for faculty, parents and community members to discuss items that deserve diverse and thoughtful input.
