School Advisory Council (SAC)


By law, every school in Florida must have a School Advisory Council (SAC). This council consists of teachers, support personnel, parents, student representatives, and community members. Fifty-one percent (51%) of the council must not be employed by Volusia County Schools. The School Advisory Council:

  • assists in the preparation and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan
  • assists in the preparation of the annual school budget
  • decides how funds for school improvement will be spent
  • assists in prioritizing the needs of the school
  • assists in developing strategies to improve the areas of need
  • adheres to the Sunshine Law​
