District Accountability Advisory Committee

The establishment of a District Accountability Advisory Committee (DAAC) is one aspect of educational accountability in the state of Colorado that allows for the input of parents, educators, administrators, and the community in establishing clearly defined statewide academic performance objectives.

Meetings are typically held on the 1st Monday of the month, September through May, from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the District Office, 201 E 12th St., Durango.
