What is School Community Council?

A school community council is a committee made up of parents and school professionals who help determine the needs of our school and the best methods and programs to support those needs through the School Land Trust Program. Members of the school community council will meet together approximately 4-6 times during the school year to discuss the schools needs, the School Land Trust plan, and its implementation.

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 at the school.

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. Our council decides how these funds will be used.   The council reviews and prepares other academic 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 school and school district administrations.

If you are interested in serving on Central’s SCC then please reach out to the principal to get more information.

How will LAND Trust and TSSA Money be spent for the 2023-2024 year?

Our School Community Council is in charge of approving our School LAND Trust Plan and accompanying budget. Central received $113,602.93 in LAND Trust money and $143,613 in TSSA money.

The entire School LAND Trust money is spent on intervention and classroom aides. Aides assist in the classroom and help intervene for at risk groups of students or take the higher achieving students so teachers can intervene.

Here is a spreadsheet showing how TSSA money will be spent:
