The DAC is a group comprised of various Adams 14 stakeholders who support the state’s system of accountability through coordinated efforts with Colorado’s Department of Education and State Board of Education, local school boards, and district leaders. 


Mission Statement

  • Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
  • Charter School Applications
  • Family Engagement
  • Provide input and recommendations to principals about the development and use of assessment tools to measure and evaluate student academic growth related to teacher evaluations;
  • Work with committee members to identify other areas of concern to address and make further recommendations.
