Each Orange County public school invites parents to get involved. One of the ways parents can get involved is through the School Advisory Council (SAC). This council is a group that brings representatives of stakeholders together to assist the school principal with developing and evaluating a school improvement plan. Each school must have a SAC that is ethnically, racially and economically representative of its community. Members of the SAC are selected according to procedures established by the school and school board in compliance with the requirements of state statutes. Each SAC is composed of the principal and representatives of teachers, education support employees, parents, community members, and students. High schools and technical centers must have students as part of their SAC membership. Student membership on middle and elementary school SACs is optional. Teachers, education support employees, students and parents are elected to the SAC by their peer groups. Community members are appointed by the principal.
