  • Building Accountability Committees

    The Building Accountability Committee is an advisory committee, not a governing body, that advises the principal on school performance, budget priorities, and parental engagement. The purpose of the committee is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program, school safety, improvement processes, and strategic plan.  If you are interested in joining the Peyton Jr.-Sr. High School BAC please contact Mr. Burnside: 749-0417 x511.
