PHS Seeking Candidates for 2015-2016 SAC

Colorado law requires every school to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC) to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parents and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes.

Ponderosa’s SAC has 3 open parent positions for the 2015-2016 school year, Two of these are for Parent Representatives, a position reserved for parents or legal guardians of Ponderosa High School students. The third position is for a representative from a parent-teacher organization. As the status of the PTSA is unclear for the 2015-2016, our bylaws allow for the election of an additional parent representative.

Although each term is for 2 years, parents of the class of 2016 are still eligible to run (they’d simply have a 1 year term). If you would like to run or would like to nominate someone, please contact Sonia Eyre, SAC Chair (seyre[at]comcast[dot]net) or Mr. Puga by Friday, May 1st. You can also contact one of the two of them with any questions.

The election will be held in early May so the new members can join our May 13th meeting. If we do not have more than three interested candidates for the positions available, those running will automatically be elected at the close of the nomination period.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
