What is FAC

Our Franklin Accountability Committee (FAC) is a standing school committee made up of (6) parents, (1) PTO Parent Representative, (5) Certificated Staff members, (1) Classified Staff member, (1) non-parent community member, and the school Principal

The purpose of the committee is to provide advisory input into decisions made by the Principal in areas such as:

- the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)
- annual school budget priorities
- school staffing plans
- significant school policies, procedures, and programs
- safety issues related to the school environment
- to fulfill the school’s accountability requirements under Colorado law.
- Attend and participate in FAC meetings
- Share information and serve as a positive community resource

A healthy and effective Accountability Committee contributes to one of Franklin’s most valuable resources:  a deep sense of community and connection.
