School Accountability Committee (SAC)

The School Accountability Committee is a group of parents and staff members who function as a communication link between the school and Bennett families. Bennett's SAC meets at least quarterly to discuss, advise and make recommendations to me regarding school progress, school spending priorities, school leadership, personnel and infrastructure, and our School's Unified Improvement Plan (SUIP), how to increase the level of parent engagement in the District and its schools, especially the engagement of parents of students in underrepresented populations, etc. At least two members of the SAC also serve as the Bennett representative and alternate representative to the District Advisory Board (DAB) which meets monthly on Mondays from 7 – 9 pm at the Johannsen Support Services Center (JSSC) at 2407 LaPorte Avenue. The DAB rep provides input and recommendations from the SAC on an advisory basis to the Superintendent concerning issues and initiatives and acts as a link between the community and the district.

Our SAC must be comprised of, but is not limited to

At least 3 parents/legal guardians of students. 2 of which who serve as our DAB rep. and alternative rep. and 1 of which who co-chairs the committee with Mrs. Smythe
1 teacher
1 BCO member
1 community member
1 principal, or principal designee

If you are interested in serving our community in this way, we would love to have you join us. Our meetings are scheduled on September 12th and November 14th at 6pm. There will be two other meetings scheduled in the 22-23 school year, but times and dates are still tbd.

Please email your interest to me asmythe@psdschools.org so I can send you the meeting link. Our meetings will be held virtually before a BCO meeting.
