Accountability

SAAC

School Accountability and
Accreditation Committee

The CMHS School Accountability and Accreditation Committee (SAAC) is made up of administrators, parents, and citizens within the Cheyenne Mountain community. The Committee is established by state law and evaluates the quality and value/cost relationship of the school’s academic, safety, and wellness programs, and makes monetary and programmatic recommendations to the school principal on such matters.  
   
The Committee is comprised of at least 7 members that meet monthly during the school year:  3 parent representatives, faculty member, principal, PTO representative, non-parent taxpayer and any other member selected by the chair and principal.    
   
The SAAC Committee meets the second or third Thursday of each month during the school year at 11:45 a.m. in the CMHS Conference Room.  Our first meeting will be held on Thursday, September 13 in the CMHS Conference Room.  Meetings are open to all parents and district residents.   

Contact Tony Bricker, SAAC Chair for more information.  Persons desiring to be committee members need to contact Tony Bricker or principal Don Fortenberry.

2018-19 SAAC meetings will be at 11:45 am the High School Main Conference Room:  9/13, 10/11, 11/15, 12/13, 1/17, 2/14, 3/14, 4/11, 5/16.


CMHS SAAC 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 finding out the strengths of our school and areas needing improvement. Information gathered from the parent survey is used by our administrators and SAAC to help improve our school each year. The survey included questions and comment areas on the strengths of our school, areas to improve, curriculum, instructional programs, school climate, school safety, communication and parent involvement to help make the 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.

The District 12 DAAC meets on the second Monday of each month (September through May) at 4:00 p.m. in the community room of the Cheyenne Mountain School District Administration Office, 1775 LaClede Street.  All DAAC meetings are open to the public, and visitors are welcome.
