The Colorado School Finance Act of 1988 establishes a school advisory accountability committee for every public school in Colorado. By November 1st of each year, the principal of each school, with the assistance of the school staff, must adopt ambitious goals and plans to improve graduation rates and student achievement. it is a yearly responsibility of the LAC to monitor and report the progress made toward meeting the established goals. The committee includes the school principal, four staff members, the PTO president/s, three parents who have children attending the school, and one community resident who does not have children attending the school.
There are a minimum of six meetings each year. Generally, the LAC holds monthly meetings, held after school, for approximately 1 hour. Every parent or guardian of a Lenski student is welcome to apply for membership. The term of a parent representative is two years. Application forms are available here or in the Lenski office..
