DAAC (District Advisory Accountability Committee)

  • What DAAC is:

    • State law and district policy require that a committee of teachers, parents, and other community members work together to advise and oversee the work of the district to achieve its obligations and goals for our students. 

    Why DAAC is important:

    • DAAC is an important part of the seamless unity between the district and community that facilitates the success of our students.
    • It provides a good platform for the community to keep abreast of the work that the district is doing but to also ask questions and provide input.

    DAAC Mission:
    Stakeholders advise and hold Estes Park School District accountable in terms of their mission, vision, and goals.

    DAAC Vision:
    Our diverse community works with the district to assure that our students graduate with the knowledge, skills, and experiences needed to be successful and responsible citizens.
