Welcome to Greenfield’s

School Advisory Council, 2021-22

What's the Role of a School Advisory Council (SAC)?

In Philadelphia, SACs are peer-elected, collaborative teams that work to broaden student opportunity and strengthen family/school engagement in the educational process and school community.


SAC Goals and Objectives

  • Support the mission of Greenfield as a neighborhood public school that fosters rigorous academics and mindful students in an engaged, diverse, environmentally-conscious community
  • Discuss the school action plan, budget, parent school compact and parent involvement policy
  • Provide input and recommendations
  • Design and develop programs and initiatives with a focus on: improving school climate and culture, strengthening the health and well-being of Greenfield, and supporting student success.
