District Accountability Committee (DAC)

The District Accountability Committee (DAC) is made up of representatives from every district school, community members at-large, and principal representatives. The committee receives an annual charge, or list of duties and activities, from the Board of Education. The committee meets monthly to discuss district issues, activities, and programs. School representatives serve as the link between their school accountability committee and the District Accountability Committee.

DAC meetings are held in the Boardroom at the Education Services Center on the third Wednesday of the month, September to April from 7-9 p.m. 

For information about becoming a member of DAC, or other questions about the committee, contact:
