About SAAC

The Student Accountability Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a group of high school students who meet monthly with school district administration on issues related to students. SAAC represents the more than 9,700 high school students in the Boulder Valley School District. It is a group that  influences decisions directly impacting students, such as the suspension/expulsion policies, weighted grades, increasing credits given for school sports, and much more.

The purpose of SAAC is to give all students a greater voice in the decisions that affect them and their education. SAAC is a tool for students – it is a way to bring important issues up and enact change on district-wide student issues. The SAAC ultimately improves communication between students, teachers, administration and the Superintendent.
 
SAAC is organized with two students from every high school in the district to represent their school. Meetings begin at 5 p.m. and typically end around 7 p.m. They are scheduled throughout the year, generally on the first Monday of each month. SAAC meets at the Boulder Valley Education Center (6500 E. Arapahoe Road, Boulder, CO 80303).
