The School Advisory Committee is an organization that fosters participation in school affairs by members of the school and military communities and provides a coordinated process to address and resolve issues at the lowest practical level. SAC members advise the school principal on school matters, deal with issues brought to their attention by the school community, and establishes goals and objectives for the academic year.
SAC is composed of parents who are elected to the committee from the elementary, middle and high school sections, as well as professional school staff members. The School Advisory Committee also includes certain nonvoting liaison members including the school principal, school liaison officer, military garrison representative (or commander) and sometimes student representatives.
SAC meetings are held at least four times a year and notices are sent to parents prior to each meeting. These meetings are public meetings, though they are not meetings of the public. Parents and staff members are encouraged to attend SAC meetings to learn more about school programs and issues, and are invited to submit items to SAC members to be placed on the meeting agendas.
You will find an “Issue Input” form at the bottom of this page. Feel free to submit an issue if there is something you’d like the SAC to address. Simply fill out the form and drop it by the main office at the school. We hope that you and your family have a great experience here at SHAPE American Elementary School.
