Franklin Parent Organization
The Franklin parent organization, (FPO) is a very important element of Benjamin Franklin Charter School. All parents become members of this parent organization and pay annual dues of $20.00 per family. The dues provide the funds necessary for the parent organization to ensure the smooth ongoing operation of the school and supplemental or extracurricular activities that the parent organization deems necessary. The parent organization has a representative board (FPAC – Franklin Parent Advisory Council) consisting of 12 elected members that meet monthly to act on matters of policy and concern. The FPAC representatives are elected by the entire parent organization. Appointed representatives may be added to the council as needed. All parents of Benjamin Franklin Charter School parents are invited and encouraged to attend these monthly meetings. Meeting dates will be published in the school newsletter. Please feel free to contact members of the FPAC at any time with questions, ideas, or concerns.
