The Meredith School Advisory Council (SAC) is a district-wide effort to keep parents, caregivers, families and community members engaged with the school. The 3 major goals for SAC as laid out by the district are:
SAC is a data-driven advisory body comprising parents, community members, school leadership and optionally a student representative.
All are welcome to attend our monthly SAC meetings, where we discuss and develop policies around the curriculum, school safety and security, operations, maintenance, outreach to parents and community members, and community event planning. SAC members also review the School Improvement Plan and the School Budget. SAC members may also be involved in supporting the leadership team with the assessment of open staff positions and candidates.
In the past, SAC has worked collaboratively to find solutions for issues like implementing traffic safety improvements around the building, finding school crossing volunteers to bridge the hiring gap in the district, advocating for overcrowding solutions and improving kindergarten enrollment policies.
Our current SAC members include:
|Principal Brian Wallace||Caroline Thorn, Facilitator|
|Mr. Hamm||Hilary Young, Organizer|
|Mrs. Hoffman||Kerry Durst, Secretary|
|Mrs. Rash||Rahul Ganesan|
|Stacy Koilor, HSA Liaison||Susanna Ding|
|Eugene Desyatnik, Community Liaison||Vicki Clark-Kadish|
