AXIS School Accountability Committee

The School Accountability Committee (SAC) brings together families, staff, and community members to create and implement a plan to promote high achievement within a school. This committee meets throughout the school year to present the opportunity for key stakeholders (namely parents and AXIS staff + teachers) to have a voice in their school.

  • The Principal or Principal's designee
  • At least one teacher 
  • A Board Representative 
  • At least three parents 
  • A community member
