• Establishment

    In 1991, the Florida Legislature enacted a law that created School Advisory Councils (SAC) to assist in upholding the effectiveness of our public schools. Today, every public school in the state of Florida has a SAC to act as the driving force behind the school improvement process and increase student achievement. 

    Florida Statute 1001.452, Addresses requirements for School Advisory Councils



    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 with the goal of creating programs that encourage innovation at the school. The School Advisory Council (SAC) shall be the sole body responsible for final decision-making at the school relating to implementation of ss.1001.42(18). The SAC is composed of parents, teachers, community members, school administrators, non-instructional support staff, and other stakeholders who meet regularly to discuss priorities, set annual objectives, and monitor action steps for school improvement planning.
