Get Involved

The most significant predictor of a student’s achievement in school and preparation for a life of success and happiness is parental involvement. Parents who are actively engaged in the educational process are partners with teachers in ensuring that their child is receiving a good education.

Kids Thumbs Up

KMS School Advisory Committee (SAC)

Our main objective is to enhance and collaborate on how we can improve our students' school experience. We urge you to consider being involved...working on making things better by working together for our students.  Parents of Kadena Middle School students and the professional staff are eligible to be candidates for the SAC.  They may also vote in the SAC election. The SAC also invites students to present and participate on issues brought to this forum. For further information, please contact the school office at 634-0217.

What is SAC?
DOD Instruction 5105.49 requires the creation of a local School Advisory Committee (SAC) for each school in DODDS. The School Advisory Committee will be responsible for advising the Principal on all matters affecting the operation of the school. Committee concerns will include school policy, instructional programs, staffing issues, budget, facilities, maintenance, administration procedures, pupil personnel services, educational resources, program evaluation, student standards of conduct, and other educationally related items. This committee is an advisory group. The Principal retains the right to make all final decisions on school policy. 

Meeting Schedule:
