Get Involved

The most significant predictor of a student’s achievement in school and preparation for a life of success and happiness is parental involvement. Parents who are actively engaged in the educational process are partners with teachers in ensuring that their child is receiving a good education.

School Advisory Committee (SAC)

Our Mission:
To work collectively in supporting the school, enhancing programs and improving delivery of educational programs and support services. In addition, we also work to help to improve the overall quality of life shared by our students and the community at large. In the end, our support allows us to advise the principal on matters within the jurisdiction of the school and DoDDS

What is SAC?
DOD Instruction 5105.49 requires the creation of a local School Advisory Committee (SAC) for each school in DODDS. The purpose is to further the concept of participation in school affairs by members of the school community. The SAC consist of elected parents, students, and teachers who are interested in improving the quality of education at Daegu American School. This committee advises the school administration on matters which impact on the quality of education in the school.

 

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The purpose of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is to promote friendly relations and mutual
understanding between parents and teachers; to cooperate with school authorities in order to advance
the educational interests, social development, and physical well-being of the students. The PTO acts as a forum for parents' views and attitudes toward topics of mutual interest to parents and the school and provides reciprocal opportunities for the administration to disseminate information to the parents regarding school policies and curriculum. Membership in the PTO is open to parents, staff, and interested community members.
