School Community Council
About School Community Council (SCC)Each public school, in accordance with Utah State Legislature, is required to establish a School Community Council (SCC) consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal. The council makes decisions about the funds the school receives from the School LAND Trust Program. For the 2019-20 school year North Park Elementary received approximately $50,000 for school improvement. The council prepares a school improvement plan and a School LAND Trust spending plan to identify and address the school's greatest academic need(s). Plans are submitted to and approved by the local school board for implementation the following year. Other duties of the council include the development of a Child Access Routing Plan, a reading achievement and intervention program, and to give input on digital citizenship and safe technology use in schools. The council may also act as an advisory board for any topics related ot the functions of the school, such as reviewing the Teacher and Student Success Act (TSSA) plan.SCC members are elected each fall of the current school year. Members include a combination of school employees, the principal, and parents or guardians of students attending the school. Notifications about open council seats are sent each spring and throughout the summer. Detailed information about how to file for candidacy is shared each year at Back to School Night and in opening newsletters.
