News From the Nest
Week of September 6 - September 9
Dear Falcon Families,
Audubon Park School K8 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 and 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. Teachers, education support employees, students and parents are elected to the SAC by their peer groups. Community members are appointed by the principal.
The first SAC informational meeting will be held on September 22 in the Media Center at 3:15pm. At this meeting, we will discuss the process of SAC and set additional meetings.
Trevor Honohan, Principal
