What is an accountability committee?

An accountability committee is a group of parents/guardians, grandparents, or other community members who have a vested interest in public school with a desire to help make positive changes that promote the community school. The committee serves in an advisory capacity to the principal on issues that might affect the entire school community.

Why do we have an accountability committee?

The primary purpose of the accountability committee is to serve in an advisory capacity to the principal and school board on matters that affect that school site. Local school accountability committees shall provide a means for citizens to have an integral part in the decision-making process at the school that he/she serves.

Who can serve as an accountability committee member?

An accountability committee member must be an adult who is a proponent of public education and must have demonstrated continual involvement and service to his/her local school.

Local accountability committees will follow guidelines established in Jefferson County Board Policy AE-R-1. These guidelines help compose accountability committees as follows:

  • At least one teacher who provides instruction in the school.
  • At least three parents of students enrolled in the school.
  • At least one adult member of an organization of parents, teachers, and students recognized by the school.
  • At least one adult member of the community.
  • Committees shall be composed of not fewer than 7 nor more than 12 members.

How often do accountability committee meet?

The West Woods School Accountability Committee meets every month. Accountability Committees are required to conduct a minimum of 4 meetings, at least one each quarter, per year. Local school accountability committee members must attend 50% or more of the regular scheduled meetings each year.

Accountability Committee meetings are open to all members of the community.
