Every school must have a School Community Council that consists of the principal, school employees and parents. The majority of members are parents. Parents represent parent perspectives on issues and in votes made by the council.
The council is responsible to review and propose changes to academic school plans each year. The School Improvement Plan and School LAND Trust Plan outline the student’s greatest academic needs and include an action plan to address them. Both plans are approved by the local school board and then implemented at the school. The School LAND Trust Plan is implemented with funds that increase every year. The council decides how the money is to be spent in the plan.
The council has other responsibilities:
Parents are invited to join the council at the beginning of every school year during registration. Please contact Jeff Bossard for more information.
The meeting dates for the 2021-22 school year are at Itineris Thursday evenings from 6-8 pm in room 101.

The School LAND Trust program brings tens of millions of dollars annually to academic programs in public schools across Utah. These funds are the only discretionary funds many schools receive.
Each school elects a school community council consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal. Councils carefully study their school test scores, decide which areas they want to improve and develop a School Improvement Plan. From that plan, a council chooses one or more academic areas on which to focus its annual trust dividend from the School LAND Trust program to improve student performance.
Councils set measurable goals with a plan to achieve the goals and submit the plan online. Their local school board will approve the plan or may ask for revisions before approval. Funds are only distributed to schools with approved plans.
