Regular Board meetings are generally held on the SECOND Thursday of each month at 7 pm, except if that day falls on a holiday or conflicting event in which case the meeting will be held on the third Thursday. Meetings are held at the school in the Literacy room or as updated on the notice board. The meetings are open to the public, except when the board votes to go into executive session. No meetings regularly scheduled meetings are held in July.
(This is our original charter application. In some areas, the charter application has been superseded by the charter agreement.)

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
