School Accountability Committee (SAC)

School Accountability Committee

Parent & Staff Involvement

We’re striving to attain the next level of excellence at Frontier Valley and would love for you to be a part of it! Your input is vital to the success of Frontier Valley’s goals ~ the commitment is only 2 hours a month!

The stated purpose of the School Accountability Committee (SAC) is to inform, encourage, and to provide opportunities for parents and the school community to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement programs.

Requirements – A desire to make Frontier Valley not just a great school, but an excellent school! Do not hesitate to get involved – this is not a huge commitment, but you can make a huge impact in the further development of a great school for your kids!

This is your forum for discussion, and improvement, as well as a time for teachers, staff, administration and parents to look at ideas for making this school the best it can be. Don’t let others make these decisions for you – be there!

If you have questions or concerns please contact Darci Harvey. You are welcomed and encouraged to attend any meetings throughout the school year.
