Facilities Advisory Committee

About the FAC

The Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC) serves as a working committee of the FUSD Board of Education. The committee anticipates District facilities needs by studying current and future needs related to student enrollment, develops processes and procedures for obtaining input from community and employee organizations, submits recommendations to the Board, and conducts reviews of various reports, trends, and proposals. See the FAC Bylaws for more information.

Please send feedback for the FAC to [email protected].
