School Community Council
Council members are often willing volunteers who care about the success of students. School improvement is the responsibility of everyone, from students and parents to professionals and public officials. Get involved today!
What is a School/Community Council?
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. Please note: All School/Community Council meetings are open to the public.
