The DAC is a Board appointed committee which brings together staff, parents, and community members to advise the District and Board on plans to promote high achievement throughout the District, including identifying priorities for spending, providing input on the district performance plans, and implementing the District's parent engagement plan. This committee meets quarterly throughout the year and is an opportunity for key stakeholders to have a voice in their District.
