Dashwood Advisory Committee
In addition to the formal governance framework, the Academy has a forum, Dashwood Advisory Committee (DAC), to promote strong links with parents and the local community.   While it is not part of the governance of the Academy, the DAC provides a means for its members to gain a better understanding of the functioning of the Academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Board.
