School Organizations

Local School Council (LSC)
The LSC is a group of elected representatives from the Farnsworth school community whose membership is comprised of the principal, two teachers, one non-teaching staff member, six parents, and two community representatives. Their job is to help oversee the spending of some of the school’s state allocated funds, approving the annual school budget, and conducting the annual performance evaluation of the principal.

Meetings are open to the public and are held on scheduled dates, which will be sent home, available on the website, and posted on the LSC board near the front entrance. Information on meeting dates and times as well as the LSC members for the 2016-2017 school year can be found on the LSC page of the Farnsworth website.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA is a group of Parents and Teachers who support the students of Farnsworth in a variety of ways. The purpose of the PTA is to provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to work together to provide the best education possible for all of Farnsworth’s students. Through annual activities, events, and supplies, the PTA provides students, faculty, and staff with the tools necessary to maximize learning.

A membership drive is held at the start of each school year for those who are interested in joining the PTA. The annual dues are used as seed money to begin providing the programs  that promote a rich learning environment at Farnsworth. Every dollar raised at a PTA sponsored fundraiser/event throughout the year goes right back to our school to finance  the budgeted events and items for the year.

Information on meeting dates and times as well as the officers for the 2016-2017 school year can be found on the PTA page of the Farnsworth website. You can contact the PTA at
