“The Utah State Legislature passed a law in 2000 requiring every public school in the state to establish a School Community Council* at the school-site level (Utah Code. Section 53A-1a-108). Two years later the legislature passed a second bill mandating several changes in the duties, powers and membership of the School Community Councils in Utah. This law took effect July 1, 2002.”

Our School Community Council is dedicated to the success and achievement of our children. The Utah State Legislature created these councils with three purposes in mind. The first is “To build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees and administrators.” Second, “To allow parents an opportunity to be actively involved, with the school, in their children’s education.” And third, “To enhance academic excellence at the school and address the needs of students.”
