What is new about the DAC?
In the Fall of 2021 the DAC reviewed its current practices for membership selection. In November the Board of Trustees approved an updated BQA (LOCAL) policy and our Executive Leadership team approved the creation of BQA (REGULATION). Under theses updated policies, the DAC will follow a vertical team rotation for parents and teacher membership. This new approach will have its inaugural year for the 2022-2023 school year. We are seeking parent membership from the following schools:
