Opportunities for Parent Involvement

InvolvedThere are many ways to get involved and make a difference at Ponderosa High School. We encourage you as parents to take an active role in what is going on at your child's school. Whether you participate in our SAC, assist with our fundraisers, join our Booster Clubs, or simply volunteer, we encourage you to take an active role in the many happenings at PHS!

SAC

The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround plan, and meets at least quarterly to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to the school’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education. Final decision-making authority rests with the principal or other person or group receiving the recommendation from the SAC (e.g., The Superintendent, District Accountability Committee (“DAC”) or Board of Education).

Join Ponderosa's School Accountability Committee at our first meeting of the 2018-2019 school year! We'll be discussing all of the exciting changes at PHS this year, as well as the funding needs in Douglas County Schools and specifically in Ponderosa High School. Hope to see you there! The meeting is from 3:45-5 on Tuesday, Aug. 21 in Room 119 at the school. Hope to see you there!

The School Accountability Committee (SAC) has two (2) openings for parents or guardians of Ponderosa students in the 2018-2019 school year.
