What is SAC?

SAC stands for School Accountability Committee. The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement or Turnaround plan, and meets at least quarterly to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to the school’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education. The SAC also makes recommendations to the principal for prioritizing spending of school monies.

What do attendees do at SAC meetings?

The parents who attend the meetings will have an opportunity to just sit and listen to the discussions between the Principal and the rest of the SAC board members and any guest speakers. Parent guests at the SAC meeting have no expectations placed upon them, other than to understand the material presented at the meetings and be a positive voice in the community while sharing the information with others. If desired, there is an open forum at the end of each meeting where parents can bring any appropriate concerns in front of the SAC board.

MVE SAC Supports 5A (MLO) and 5B (Bond)
The Mountain View Elementary SAC supports the $66,000,000 Mill Levy Override (MLO) question as well as the $484,000,000 Bond question to be submitted to voters of the District on the November 7, 2023 ballot.

We support the MLO and Bond given the current funding challenges facing the Douglas County School District (DCSD), including:
 There are capital needs that, if not met, could threaten the physical safety and/or interrupt the education of students in our community. DCSD currently has no dedicated funds to address these issues.

 District wages are well below those of our neighboring districts, resulting in a loss of personnel to other school districts. This is not good for our students.

Additionally, turnover and teacher and staffing shortages put an undue burden on the entire education system. We believe it is time again for Douglas County to unite in support of our students and community. Please join us by voting YES on both 5A (MLO) and 5B (Bond) this November.

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records at this link ( Douglas County School District Transcripts and Records Requests ).
