School Advisory Committee (SAC)

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 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 or writing us SAC on email , VicenzaES.SAC@eu.dodea.edu

School Deployment Support Information and Contact Info

Deployments, Redeployment and Permanent Change of Station are transition stages that can cause stress within the family environment. Many of you have experienced these transitions numerous times and are aware of the dynamics involved. The return or departure of the spouse alters the routines of the home bringing new adjustments and challenges. Children can be affected by these changes and problems can develop. Instability of mood, anxiety, irritability,sadness, rebelliousness and risk taking behaviors can emerge that may affect relationships and school functioning.

To a degree, it is important to view school functioning as a barometer of children adjustment. Sudden changes in behavior and/or persistent underachievement may be the way they communicate that things are not well.

At our school, we have different ways of supporting students during difficult transition times. It is critical that you share your concerns with us. Throughout the year we conduct surveys to identify students with deployed or redeployed parents. Our teachers are knowledgeable and sensitive about these issues. The guidance counselors and school psychologist can provide direct assistance or guide you to additional community resources. Our school counselors are also conducting deployment groups so that students can be of support to one another and share their concerns and common experiences. Please feel free to contact your child's counselor or school psychologist with any concerns.
