Accountability, Accreditation and Assessment
What is AAA?
The State of Colorado requires all schools to have a School Accountability Committee (SAC). Here at RMAE, our SAC is called AAA (Accountability, Accreditation and Assessment).
Comprised of the school’s director, teachers, staff, parents and community members, AAA serves in an advisory role to the director and board of directors regarding the school’s academic performance.
What Does AAA Do?
Based on state and district policies, a SAC (RMAE AAA) is asked to perform the following:
- Make recommendations regarding spending priorities
- Provide input to the state required school Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
- Meet at least quarterly to discuss the implementation of the school’s improvement plan and review the school’s performance against the plan
- Provide input regarding the director’s development plan and evaluation
- Help increase the level of parent engagement within the school community
How Does AAA Do This?
Here at RMAE, AAA meets monthly to help achieve its stated goals. With the use of the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) and the RMAE Surveys (parent, staff and student), AAA is able to create yearly goals and objectives, as well as provide recommendations to the director and board of directors regarding the school’s performance.
RMAE parents and staff are encouraged to join AAA. New positions are available each spring, and terms are two years in length. A member can serve no more than two consecutive terms (4 years), however a member can return to serve again in future years.
All AAA meetings are open to the public. We encourage teachers, staff members and parents to join our meetings at any time. Each meeting begins with the opportunity for open comment, providing the chance for anyone to express an opinion or concern.
It is required by the state that all SACs post their meeting times, agendas and meeting minutes. Please refer to the RMAE website and calendar for this information.
