STUDENT-FACULTY ADMINISTRATION COMMITTEE (SFAC)
SFAC meets regularly to discuss items of relevance to the student body. The members include student officers, faculty representatives and members of the administration. Meetings are chaired by a representative of the student body selected by the G.O. Past discussions have been on subjects such as the honor system, dress code, school time scheduling, school calendar and building maintenance. Although SFAC is an advisory body, it does influence administration policy through the vigor and frankness of its deliberations.
