What is the School Community Council?
“The School Community Council (SCC) is comprised of parents, school employees, and the principal. The Council has statutory responsibilities to develop the School Improvement and LAND Trust plans which are focused on increasing student achievement in our school and may include provisions for professional development. Throughout the school year, the SCC reviews school data, identifies academic needs, sets measurable goals, establishes action steps to reach those goals, and evaluates success of the plans. This gives parents and school employees opportunities to be involved in the decision making process at the local school level.
The SCC is responsible for determining how the LAND Trust funds are used in our school. When Utah was granted Statehood, parcels of land were placed in a perpetual Trust with the children of Utah as beneficiaries. Revenues from these lands go into the Permanent State School Fund. The dividends and interest of that fund are distributed annually to each public school in Utah. Our school received $87,844 from Land Trust funds and $79,796 from TSSA Funds during the 2019-2020 school year. For the current 2020-21 school year we will be receiving $ 96,762 from Land Trust funds and $ 94,732 from TSSA funds.
Additionally the SCC serves as an advisory council to the school and district administration as well as the Canyons District Board of Education. In this role, an SCC fosters communication between the school and the community on local school issues. The School Community Council is a vital partner in fulfilling the mission of Canyons School District: Every student will graduate college-and-career ready.”
