Sunrise Community Council

  • Every school has a school community council or a trust lands committee. The membership of a school community council includes the principal, teachers elected by teachers, and a majority of parents elected by parents of students at the school. The most effective councils and committees are those whose members work collaboratively to develop plans to aid all students in reaching their potential. The public is welcome to attend all meetings. 

    Parents act as the primary advocates for all children. By working as a group and understanding the legal responsibilities that lie with the principal, parents ensure the representation of various viewpoints and values within the community. Parent engagement is key to student achievement and student progress. Parents make up the majority of a school community council, and are often the driving force. Parents will serve as chair and vice-chair or in at least one of the co-chair positions. It is important that parents on the council understand the responsibilities of the council, and are able to collaborate well with the other members of the council to effect meaningful school improvement for all children. 

    Sunrise has a supportive community council. Each year we need additional parent member to join this council.  Contact Derek Beer ( 435-563-3866 if you are interested in serving on the School Community Council.
