Student Advisory Council on Climate Change

  • The Student Advisory Council on Climate Change (SAC3) is an advisory committee to the School Board, providing student perspectives on climate education, and working alongside the School Board and District Administrators to incorporate adequate and updated climate curriculum in all grade levels.
