Accountability

SAAC

School Accountability and
Accreditation Committee

The Piñon Valley Elementary School Accountability and Accreditation Committee (SAAC) is made up of administrators, parents and citizens within the school community.  The Committee is created by state law and serves as an advisory panel to its District counterpart (DAAC) and a liaison to parents and the community. We are always looking to increase involvement, so please consider joining us.  The SAAC meeting schedule can be found on our school calendar.

The SAAC Committee meets monthly, and our meetings are open to all. Check our home page for addtional information.

 

Parent Survey Report

We would like to thank our parents for participating in the District wide on-line parent survey.  The annual parent survey is important for discerning the strengths of our school as well as those areas needing improvement.  Information gathered from the parent survey is used by our administrators and SAAC to help improve our school each year.  This year's survey included five school specific questions and several general questions regarding instructional programs, school climate, school safety, homework, communication and parent involvement.  Please know that all of the invaluable information we collected through this survey can only help make our school a better place.

DAAC

District Accountability and
Accreditation Committee

Parent and community volunteers have long been and will continue to be vital contributors to the success of the Cheyenne Mountain School District. While most volunteer groups and opportunities are based at the school level, one of the largest District-wide committees is the District Accountability and Accreditation Committee (DAAC).

The DAAC is a 27-member committee comprised of principals and parent volunteers from each District 12 school, non-parent taxpayers, parents-at-large, a teacher-at-large, the superintendent, and other District administrators.  The two most critical tasks of the DAAC are (1) to review the goals, objectives, and plans of each District 12 school in order to formulate recommendations to the Board of Education regarding each school’s accreditation status, and (2) to formulate, conduct, and report the annual District 12 Parent Survey.

This survey, distributed electronically to each student’s household, solicits answers to questions on topics ranging from curriculum to food service, and from school safety to homework.

The data from this survey is used by school accountability and accreditation committees, principals, and faculty members to help identify goals and actions for the subsequent school year.  Ultimately, the data from this survey and the associated action plans become an integral part of the DAAC accreditation process.

A summary of the DAAC Parent Survey can be found here:
