Superintendent’s Advisory Committee for Enrollment & Transfer (SACET)

The advisory committee explores both the policies and practice around school choice, enrollment and transfer, with topics such as priority and preferences in the school choice lottery, guarantees in student assignment and other important issues.

The committee is a critical sounding-board for Superintendent Smith as she considers changes to the school choice system to improve equity, access and educational achievement for students. While the committee will not be asked to decide the issues, its members will shape the superintendent’s actions and recommendations to the School Board.

SACET charge for 2013
In February 2013, the School Board requested a review of enrollment and transfer policies and district-wide boundaries. Superintendent Smith has defined roles for SACET in both these efforts:

  • Recommend revisions to enrollment and transfer policies to improve alignment with PPS strategic framework and Racial Educational Equity policy
  • Participate in district-wide boundary review process
