Rice’s School Accountability Committee is made up of parents, community members, staff, and the principal. Each school is required by law to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC). The membership of the SAC is outlined by the law. The parents are to be representative of the diverse population groups in the school and are to be greater in number than any other group on the SAC. The role of the SAC is to provide input to the school principal on allocation of money and determining goals for the School Improvement Plan. The SAC also determines if the teachers and principal of the school are helping or hindering the attainment of the school goals. The SAC provides a written report to the District Accountability Committee. The SAC is required to meet a minimum of four times each school year.
