SACA Background

It is extremely important for parents to get involved in their child`s education. Our school has an elected School and Community Association (SACA) that is a forum for involving all members of the school community in issues that affect the education of students. SACA is made up of a committee of parents/guardians, staff, the principal, and a general membership which includes all  guardians of children attending the school. SACA advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, after school activities, and criteria for selection of new principals. Please contact the school or come to an SACA meeting to find out more about how families can be involved at Gledhill.
