Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the School Trust Lands. This year our school received $77,722.00 from the the program. Our council decides how these funds will be used. The council also reviews and prepares other academic and safety plans for our students each year. All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board. Councils also act in an advisory capacity to the school and district administrators. All parents are welcome to attend our meetings and give input, although only those who are on the council may vote how the money is spent. 


Every public school in Utah has a School Community Council. The councils are made up of school employees who are elected by employees and parents who are elected by parents of students attending the school. Membership terms are for two years. Elections are held at the beginning of each school year. Parent members must have a student attending the school at least one of the two years of their term of service. Employees must be employed by the school district for the school.
