Shaffer Elementary believes in the value of community involvement in our school. Having an active parent engagement helps to ensure our school community needs are being served through a positive collaboration between the school leaders, staff, and members of the community. The purpose of a school-level accountability committee (SAC) is to serve as an advisory role to the school principal. The school principal is ultimately responsible for ensuring compliance with all federal, state, and district requirements and meeting the academic performance expectations defined by Jeffco Public Schools. At a minimum, the SAC is responsible for the following…

• Makes recommendations to the principal on school priorities for spending school funds prior to adoption of the school budget. This review should ensure that funds and spending priorities align with the school’s improvement plans and core values of the school to benefit all students.

• Annually reviews and approves the school fees.

• Provides recommendations annually on the school’s Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).

• Meets quarterly to review and discuss the implementation and progress of the school’s improvement plan.

• On an advisory basis, when requested by the SPAC (Jeffco’s District Accountability Committee) and/or district administration, provide input and recommendations concerning principal development plans and the principal evaluation process.

• Assists school personnel to increase the level of parent engagement in the school, especially the engagement from diverse populations.
