Students in Mrs. McKee's Kindergarten class at West DeFuniak Elementary are learning about the letter Tt. Students are covering the Tt with tissue paper. This multisensory activity also helps students with their fine motors skills when they tear the tissue paper. Students pictured, left to right: Jaxson Turner, Malika Patel, Mayson Hollingsworth, Ailea Harris, Anthony Serrano, and Gracelynn Smith.

Please join us on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at the Carlene H. Anderson Training Center (555 Walton Rd., DeFuniak Springs, FL 32435) at 6:00 pm for our School Advisory Council, SAC District Training. All new SAC members are encouraged to attend.
The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a team of people representing various segments of the community–parents, teachers, students, administrators, support staff, business/ industry people and other interested community members. The purpose of a SAC is to assist in the preparation and evaluation of the results of the school improvement plan.
Each school in the State of Florida must have a SAC. By law, each SAC must be composed of the principal and an “appropriately balanced” number of “stakeholders.” These individuals must be representative of the ethnic, racial and economic makeup of the community served by the school. High schools and vocational technical centers must have students on the SACs. Middle and junior high schools may include students on their SAC. The majority of SAC members (over 50 percent) must not be employed by the SCHOOL DISTRICT on whose SAC they serve.
We look forward to seeing you on September 20th.
