School Committees

Fairmont has several committees overseen by school administration, rather than by the PTA. For more on the PTA and its committees, visit our PTA page.

Meetings for all the committees below are posted on Fairmont's Google Calendar.

School Site Council (SSC)

Meetings of the SSC are open to the public. The committee meets at 3pm on the third Monday of each month. Note that schedules may change based on holidays and other factors; the official meeting schedule is posted in the school office.

The purpose of the SSC is to oversee the School Site Plan (SSP) and approve funding for resources required to achieve it. The SSP defines goals to improve student achievement using data from state and district tests. It is composed of five staff members and five parent or community members, elected from their respective constituencies. For more details on school site councils and their roles and responsibilities, please visit the SSC page on the District web site. If you have questions, visit the school office or email the committee chair at ssc.fairmont@gmail.com.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

Meetings of the ELAC are open to the public. The committee meets at 8:30am on the second Friday of each month. Note that schedules may change based on holidays and other factors; the official meeting schedule is posted in the school office.

Schools with 21 or more English learners (EL) must establish an ELAC. Parents of ELs must constitute at least the same percentage of EL students represent the student body. It is recommended that the parents of ELs constitute a majority of ELAC members. During the school year, the ELAC has several responsibilities, including approving English learner budget items for programs and services for EL students. If you have questions, visit the school office or email the committee chair at elac.fairmont@gmail.com.

African-American Parent Advisory Committee (AAPAC)

The African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC) is a core group of parents, families, teachers, administrators, and community members, who are committed to the academic success and awareness of our African American Student body. The council assists in support, literacy, resource development, and overall inclusion of the school community in the enrichment, engagement and social development of African American children in the community.

One of the many responsibilities of the AAPAC is to provide advice and requests to the school principal and staff on programs and services that improve academic outcomes for African American students in our community.
