Every public school in Utah has a School Community Counci formed of parents and employees. Council members are responsible for developing school improvement plans, guided by test scores and with funding from the School LAND Trust Plan.
SCC’s make decisions that matter. As individual members become familiar with their roles and responsibilities, as outlined by state legislation and Canyons District policy, they are empowered to significantly contribute to the improvement and success of their neighborhood school. The best way to make the most out of the experiencein addition to regular attendance at meetings is through training.
