The State of Colorado mandates that each school have a School Building Accountability Committee. Each committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators and community members.
Creation of the School Improvement Plan (SIP) is the most essential duty of the School Advisory Council. It is the blueprint for change that improves students' learning. Each year, the principal, with the assistance of the School Advisory Council, must adopt ambitious goals and plans to improve graduation rates and student achievement. The process involves determining/re-examining the vision and mission for the school, completing a needs assessment that results in a school profile and needs statement indicating priority goal areas, and developing an action plan for the year's school improvement. At the end of the school year, the cycle continues with the annual evaluation of those results to the public and to the local board.
