The saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child”, and the FCTC School Advisory Council recognizes that the education of students is a shared responsibility involving the school, students, their families, and members of this community. It is especially true to students pursuing career and technical education at FCTC, who remain in the community as part of the skilled manpower that contributes to economic activities.
The Parents and guardians have the right, as well as the responsibility, to participate in the education of their children, and can contribute to their children’s development in a wide variety of ways. Other members of the community also offer a wealth of experience and expertise that may be of benefit to students during and after completion of their training. Members of all of these groups should, therefore, have the opportunity to advise in educational matters. FCTC is committed to encouraging partnerships that will enhance the education of its students.
What is the School Advisory Council?
A SAC team by Florida law is comprised of the Principal, teachers, support staff, business/community members and parents. All members are elected by the group before the first meeting. Members are encouraged to bring forth issues and offer solutions to help the school.
What is the role of SAC?
SAC assists the principal with the annual school budget. The root of SAC is data driven decision making. SAC reviews assessment data, gives feedback on the data, and monitors progress of the students.
