School Community Council
SCHOOL LAND TRUST INFORMATION
The School LAND Trust Program, established by the legislature in 1999, distributes the “annual dividend” from the permanent State School Fund through school districts and charter schools for all public schools in the state. Elected parents, elected teachers, and the school’s principal serve on School Community Councils. School Community Councils in each school prepare a plan to address the school’s greatest academic need. Local School Boards approve the plans, and funding is sent to each school with an approved plan before the school year begins.
Parents, if you are interested in becoming a critical part of the school team that helps to decide where Trust Land monies should be designated, please consider running for School Community Council. Elections are held each fall.
School Land Trust Funding for the 2018-2019 school year is $77,223.
