What is the School Advisory Council?
A School Advisory Council (SAC) is a group that advises the school principal about issues that are important for the school. According to the Nova Scotian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development policy, a SAC is required at each school.
All SACs have a Letter of Agreement signed by the SAC, the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, and the Provincial Department of Education. The SAC meets a minimum of six times per year.
SACs work with the principal to oversee the implementation, review, and update of the Student Success Plan. The goal of these activities is to ensure that students have a positive, safe, and effective learning environment.
