School Advisory Council at Newberry Elementary
Welcome to the School Advisory Council (SAC) page. School advisory council, or SAC, is the name given to each school advisory council in the School District of Alachua County Public schools. Florida's School Improvement and Accountability legislation mandated that every school have a school advisory council. Elected members of a school advisory council include teachers, educational support personnel, and parents. Business partners and community representatives are invited to be members by the principal. The majority of the SAC members should be parents and community members who are not employed at that school.

The role of a school advisory council is to develop, monitor, and evaluate the school improvement plan which is written or revised annually and submitted to the school board. You will inquire, evaluate, inform, suggest, and make recommendations as a SAC member to insure that your school's plan reflects the goals of the entire school community.
