What is a District Accountability Committee (DAC)?
As per state statute (C.R.S. 22-11-302), this is a committee that has specific responsibilities throughout the year; including, but not limited to: student achievement and review of improvement plans; financial recommendations; and/or recommendations of appropriation of resources.

Why should I be a part of this committee?
As our community sees an economic pivot, it is imperative that the school district aligns with the needs of the community. From community partnerships and workforce development to adding resources to our community, it is important to have all voices and stakeholders at the forefront of these meetings as we build for the future.
What is the time commitment?
Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of the month beginning in September (except the month of December) from 5:00pm to 6:30pm at the administrative building – 600 Texas Ave.
Composition of Committees
Each local school board is responsible for either appointing or creating a process for electing the members of a DAC.
A DAC must consist of the following, at a minimum:
● Three parents of students enrolled in the district;
● One teacher employed by the district;
● One school administrator employed by the district; and
● One person involved in business in the community within district boundaries.
