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 7-8 times during the school year to discuss the school’s needs, the School Land Trust plan, and its implementation.
Membership terms run for two years. Elections are held at the beginning of each school year. Parent members must have a student attending the school for at least one of the two years of their term of service. Employees must be employed by the school district at the school.
We invite you to serve. 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.
