District Accountability Committee

District Accountability Committee
State and federal governments emphasize the inclusion of families in the educational accountability process. The District Accountability Committee (DAC) is a legally-constituted accountability and advisory committee, of parent representatives, at the school district level. Colorado State Statute 22-11-302 requires DAC members to act in an advisory capacity on a variety of topics including:
     ● The District budget;
     ● Unified improvement plans;
     ● Charter school applications; and
     ● Family engagement 
The DAC meets monthly throughout the school year, and members have the opportunity to hear district updates and provide input on many topics. DAC members are responsible for ongoing communication with their School Accountability Committee (SAC).

DAC Membership 
Colorado State Statute 22-11-301 and the BVSD Board of Education (Policy AE-R) are responsible for establishing minimum membership requirements. Ideally, DAC membership will include one representative from each BVSD school. Annual elections will establish the DAC executive board. Details on the executive board member roles can be found within the DAC Bylaws.
