School Land Trust Program and School Community Councils

The School LAND Trust program brings tens of millions of dollars annually to meet critical academic needs and enhance and improve academic excellence in Utah public schools. The funds are generated from the earnings on the permanent State School Fund, where revenue from school trust lands is invested. The funds are discretionary for academic instruction and play a vital role in student success.

Each district school in Utah elects a School Community Council (SCC) consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal.   Councils carefully review school wide assessment data and develop a School Land Trust Plan to improve student academic performance.  School Community Councils also oversee the Digital Citizenship Plan to help students learn appropriate and responsible behavior related to technology use. 

Parents are welcome to attend SCC meetings.  The meeting schedule, agendas and minutes can be found on the tabs below.

 

Consider Serving on the Council

We invite interested parents to consider serving on the School Community Council in future years.  Elections take place in the fall at the beginning of the school year.  Information on upcoming council vacancies and the election process is provided by the school at the start of every school year.  For more information about how you can participate, please contact Principal Doug Webb at [email protected] or Council Chair Wendy Rencher at [email protected]
