The District’s Student Achievement Advisory Committee (“SAAC”) is charged by the Board of Education with providing input and insight to the CIA (Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment) Board Subcommittee related to curriculum, instruction, assessment, and student achievement. For the 2020-2021 academic year, among other topics that may be addressed, members of the SAAC will be charged with discussing, evaluating and recommending ways to address racism in our district and to create a more equitable and inclusive culture within all levels of the BCSD.This work will likely include, but may not be limited to, the following:
- Providing recommendations as to how to create a supportive culture within all our schools that promotes a responsibility to learn about and reject all forms of explicit and implicit racism.
- Understanding the roots of any inequitable practices and outcomes and recommending steps necessary to change policies, procedures or protocols that foster inequity.
- Recommending ways to celebrate our district's diversity as an asset that makes us stronger.
- Researching and making recommendations regarding the importance of an anti-racist and inclusive curriculum at every level of education.
The District’s Student Achievement Advisory Committee will meet approximately once per month, on certain Wednesdays, dates to be determined, from 7-9 p.m. in the Central Office Conference Room.
