A School Advisory Council (SAC) is a legally recognized body composed of the principal and representatives of teachers and support staff, students, parents, and community members who work together in an advisory capacity to increase the quality of education being provided by the school. School Advisory Councils bring partners together to make decisions and solve problems in the best interest of student learning.  All partners on the SAC have a voice so that the needs of students are represented and the school is responsive to the community it serves. The fundamental purpose of the SAC is to ensure that all students receive the best possible learning opportunities by engaging partners in an ongoing process of problem-solving and shared decision-making.
