  • Back to School Breakfast

    There's Nothing Fish About It!

    School Is Just Around the Corner!

    We o-fish-ally welcomed our teachers and staff back to school with a quick grab-n-go breakfast and a chance to “fish” for back-to-school office supplies game booth style.

    Today marks the day that teachers return to the classroom for pre-planning and final preparations as they get ready for another action-packed school year. While today was their official first day back, they have been back for quite a while, setting up their classrooms and getting ready for another fun-filled year of laughter and learning.

    Get ready – our teachers and staff have a lot of adventure planned for everyone!

  • School Advisory Council (SAC)

    The School Advisory Council (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 Councils should be allocated directly to the School Advisory Councils, should be clearly earmarked for their use and is not subject to override by the Principal or interim approvals by school district staff. The funds may be expended only on programs or projects selected by the school advisory council.  Funding may not be used for capital improvements.” 

    Each school in the State of Florida must have a SAC.  By law, each SAC must be composed of the principal and an “appropriately balanced” number of “stakeholders.” These individuals must be representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic makeup of the community served by the school. High schools and vocational technical centers must have students on the SACs. Middle and junior high schools may include students on their SAC. The majority of SAC members (over 50 percent) must not be employed by the SCHOOL DISTRICT on whose SAC they serve.”The whole point of school improvement is data-driven decision-making. The SAC reviews relevant data (which is much more than test scores), identifies problem areas, develops improvement strategies, monitors their implementation, and then starts the whole process over when the next round of data is available.” — KM, DOE
