    Overview

    The District Advisory Committee (DAC) is a volunteer committee required by state law. The committee is made up of one parent representative from each school site that receives State Compensatory Education funds. The funds are given to schools based on free and reduced lunch count and target students who test less than proficient. When a school receives these funds a school advisory committee is formed with parents and staff.  Representatives are encouraged to share information with their School Site Council.

    The goals and objectives of the DAC are to review the Consolidated Programs, provide advice, assistance and advisory recommendations to the BCSD Board of Education on the Consolidated Funding Program, and provide input to educational projects funded under Title I/ SCE and support parental educational programs as it pertains to the goals and objectives of this committee. The ultimate goal is to improve the education of students participating in State Compensatory Education or Title I Programs.

    Responsibilities
    The DAC consults with the district and facilitates coordination and cooperation of parents, staff, and the community on matters related to Title I programs. The DAC provides a forum for communication and information through the DAC representative. Activities include providing input on and reviewing the district's LEA Plan and is also a forum to provide input on the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

    Reasons why to attend the DAC
