Elected by the faculty prior to September 15, the Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) is a contractually-mandated, school-based committee which serves to voice concerns of the general membership to the Principal, and acts, when needed, as an interface between rank-and-file members and the Principal to address issues of concern to the school community as a whole. (Regardless of the size of the work site, the FAC shall have an absolute minimum of five (5) members, at the rate of one for every ten (10) unit members or portion thereof). The role of the FAC is to relay the legitimate concerns of Unit 1 members and to offer solutions to problems as they arise in a reasoned & non-adversarial manner. Meetings take place at the building/site level (for more information see attached FAC Guidelines).
