What is the School Community Council?

School Community Councils are comprised of elected parents and/or guardians whose children attend the school, elected employee representatives, and the school principal. As directed by state law, School Community Councils (SCC) review achievement data, help identify academic needs, provide input on school improvement plans, and assist in evaluating the success of the plans.

The SCC is also 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. In 2018-2019 School year our school received $63,162 and we will receive for the 2019-20 school year for LandTrust $74,453 and for TSSA we will receive $63,470.

Serving on the School Community Council is an excellent way to be part of school improvement and supporting your child’s educational experience. Each fall parents and teachers are invited to submit a Declaration of Candidacy to serve on the SCC. Candidacy forms are available in the spring in the front office and positions are advertised through the Ridgecrest Roar, the schools weekly newsletter. Elections are held each year before the start of the school year.
