The mission of the Atlantic Community High School Parent Teacher Student Association is to COLLABORATE, COMMUNICATE and CONNECT. We aim to:
- Unite parents, teachers and students.
- Establish a strong bond between the school and the community.
- Educate the citizens, government and businesses of Delray Beach about the many opportunities offered by Atlantic Community High School.
- Support school programs by offering and soliciting support — in money and manpower — of those programs.
The SAC (School Advisory Council) is mandated by state law to oversee a School Improvement Plan (SIP) describing specific ways the school aims to increase student academic performance. Every public school in Florida has a School Advisory Council (SAC) as a result of a 1991 law aiming to increase student achievement and the effectiveness of public schools. SAC members include the principal, school staff, parents, students and community members and must be representative of the ethnic, racial, and economic community served by each school.
The SAC meets monthly during the school year (except November, December and March). Read more about the purpose and functions of School Advisory Councils on the school district website here and see meeting dates, agendas and minutes on the ATL SAC page on Edline.
