District Advisory Committee (DAC)
The purpose of the DAC is to advise the district regarding its compensatory educational programs.
The DAC for Compensatory Education Program is a district-level advisory group comprised of parents, site staff, and community leaders who consult with the Board of Education and district staff on behalf of Compensatory Education participants. The School Advisory Council (SAC) is an advisory committee with the purpose of advising schools regarding compensatory educational programs. If a district uses Economic Impact Aid (EIA) funds for State Compensatory Education programs, as Clovis does, it is required to have a DAC. The DAC is to be elected by parents of pupils in the district who are participating in the Compensatory Education program. Parents are to constitute the majority of the membership on the committee. Additionally, Title I law requires that parents be involved in the development of the Local Education Agency (LEA) Plan and the process of school review and improvement. Parents should also be a part of the annual review of the LEA Plan as well as the review of the district parent involvement policy. CUSD combines these two tasks into the responsibilities of the DAC. A school district may designate a School Site Council (SSC), established pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 52852 to function as the SAC. CUSD votes to operate as an SSC at their first SSC meeting in Quarter I.
