School Community Council

"Each public school in Utah elects a school community council consisting of parents, teachers, and the principal. Charter Schools have Trust Lands Councils. All councils have a two parent member majority. Each council carefully reviews student assessments and progress to decide which academic areas they want to focus on.  Plans are developed to improve student academic performance in the identified academic areas with the annual School LAND Trust funds.  The plans are approved by the council, submitted [to the state], and approved by the local school board or chartering entity."   From http://www.schoollandtrust.org
