     SAC at Heatherwood

    The School Accountability Committee (SAC) is one of the many important opportunities for parents to be involved at Heatherwood. SAC is a cooperative effort of parents, community members, staff and administration who work together to examine school achievement and climate data and make recommendations to the principal regarding the use of school resources (time, money, programs and use of staff) and to guide the school improvement efforts. 

    Parents interested in serving on the School Accountability Committee will need to commit to:

    • Reading the BVSD School Accountability Committee Manual
    • Attending six meetings throughout the school year
    • Focusing on realistic and workable solutions to help Heatherwood students

     Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)

    ​​An effective school improvement planning committee allows schools to develop a strategic 2-year plan known as the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) that focuses on quality education and high levels of student achievement. The plan will drive measurable improvement in achievement and academic growth for all students, as well as measurable improvement in attendance and enrollment, and in school climate and culture. The “UIP” will be used as a regular resource, or “blueprint,” for parents, community, faculty, school staff, students and district administration.
