Welcome to the Home Page for the BCK-8 Accountability Committee

Purpose of a School Accountability Committee:

The school accountability committee (SAC) serves in an advisory role to the school Principal. The school’s Principal is ultimately responsible for ensuring compliance with all federal, state, and district requirements and meeting the academic performance expectations defined by Jeffco Public Schools.

Based on state statute and District policy, at a minimum, the SAC should:

  • Make recommendations to the Principal on school priorities for spending school funds prior to adoption of the school budget. This review should ensure that funds and spending priorities align with the school’s Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) and core values of the school to benefit all students.

  • Annually review the school fees.

  • Provide input annually regarding the school’s UIP.

  • Meet at least quarterly to review and discuss the implementation of the school’s UIP and student performance related to the school’s improvement activities.

  • Provide input and recommendations concerning Principal development plans and the Principal evaluation process on an advisory basis when requested by the district advisory committee (DAC) or district administration.

  • Assist the district in implementing at the school level the district’s parent engagement policy.

  • Assist school personnel to increase the level of parent engagement in the school, especially the engagement from diverse populations.

Additionally, for schools with Priority Improvement or Turnaround plan types, the SAC should:

  • Hold a SAC meeting inviting families to provide input for the Priority Improvement or Turnaround plan. This input is used by the Principal to make recommendations to the local school board concerning preparation of the school Priority Improvement or Turnaround.

  • Invite stakeholders to the Board of Education review of the school’s Priority Improvement or Turnaround plan. Provide a written version to attendees.
