School Advisory Councils (SAC) sets up priorities and student performance standards that serve as guiding principles for schools. The SAC is composed of the principal and a balanced number of elected teachers, education support employees, students, and parents, along with appointed business and community people, who are representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic community served by the school. A School Advisory Council looks at aspects of their school as suggested by the priorities and develops a written School Improvement Plan as part of the school and District's continuous growth model.
The Parent Lighthouse Team (PLT)/Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)'s purpose is to encourage parents to assist with various school activities/functions/services, provide financial assistance where needs are identified, foster a community atmosphere, and support the mission and vision of the school and school district. The PLT/PTO is open to all staff, parents, and legal guardians of students attending Highlands Elementary (HLE).
Official meeting minutes will be posted once they are approved by the SAC Committee at the following SAC meeting.
