Jesus Zeus Salas Has First EESAC Meeting
When he served as Principal for a Day at the Miami Dade County Public School Juvenile Justice Center last year, Jesus Zeus Salas was invited to serve on the Center’s “EESAC.” The Education Excellence School Advisory Committee is a crucial part of educational administration in the state of Florida, and Jesus Zeus Salas was honored to accept a seat on the committee after his day spent motivating students, assisting with technological concerns, and speaking with vendors to get the school the best possible prices on supplies and equipment.
As a member of the Education Excellence School Advisory Committee, Jesus Zeus Salas will be part of the sole governing body of the school. When he sits in on his first meeting on March 13, 2013, Jesus Zeus Salas will assist administrators as they make decisions related to educational improvement and various accountability processes.
The EESAC first became a part of Florida schools in the early 1990s as part of a larger scheme to reform the educational system and better hold teachers and administrators accountable for the success of their students. In addition to general decision making, Jesus Zeus Salas will have a voice in involving stakeholders of all kinds in the decision-making process. Jesus Zeus Salas will also help administrators prepare the School Improvement Plan (SIP) documents on a yearly basis, and review progress throughout the school year. Finally, Jesus Zeus Salas will help to ensure that the Juvenile Justice Center adheres to all state and district goals and standards.
Jesus Zeus Salas looks forward to his continued involvement with the Juvenile Justice Center. In addition to serving on the EESAC, Jesus Zeus Salas hopes to work further with students as he did on his day as principal, helping them to form long-term goals and acquire the skills that they need to achieve them.
