School Accountability Committee

School Accountability Committee

What is the ThunderRidge High School Accountability Committee?

All public schools in Colorado are required by law to have a School Accountability Committee.
School accountability committees are made up of parents, school employees and community members.

The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school's instructional program and quality improvement processes. By definition, the SAC is an advisory body. Final decision-making authority rests with the principal or other person or group receiving the recommendation from the SAC (e.g., the Superintendent, District Advisory Committee ("DAC") or Board of Education).

See the specific duties of the SAC listed on the Bylaws here

Meetings are held in the ThunderRidge Library at 5:00 p.m.
Any questions or concerns, please email
