What does the Accountability Committee do?  The purpose of the Accountability Committee is to support the Board by defining, measuring and interpreting progress towards the vision and mission of the school.  They do this through a continuous cycle of planning, evaluating, measuring and reporting.  Last year, they also supported the principal with the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) review.
