The School Advisory Committee (SAC) is a team of people representing various segments of the community–parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business/ industry people and other interested community members. The purpose of a SAC is to assist in the preparation and evaluation (developing and evaluating) of the results of the school improvement plan and to assist the principal with the annual school budget. Additionally, SAC receives funds "to be used at the discretion of the School Advisory Committee a portion of the money should be used for implementing the school improvement plan." "The improvement plan shall include performance indicators which are measurable." "Funding for use by the School Advisory Committee should be allocated directly to the School Advisory Committee, should be clearly earmarked for their use and is not subject to override by the Principal or interim approvals by school district staff. This money may be expended only on programs or projects selected by the school advisory committee. This money may not be used for capital improvements."
