Special Open Site Advisory Committee (SAC) Meeting

Atalaya Elementary is pleased to announce a special open SAC meeting on Tuesday, October 11th from 5:00-6:00 pm.

We have been selected as one of only a few schools in Santa Fe to give feedback to the State on what stakeholders would like to see in the State's implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signed by President Obama last December. 

Come and work through the toolkit process of giving feedback to the state.  We will be working to answer 10 questions regarding what we'd like to see in the future for New Mexico and Santa Fe Public School and their implementation of ESSA. Principal Diaz will be writing up our recommendations to be returned to the state, based on your feedback. Let your voice be heard!

  1. A video explaining some of the changes moving from No Child Left Behind towards Every Student Succeeds Act.
