What does the SCC do?

The SCC (School Community Council) plays an important role in partnering in the education of our children with the school, its staff and faculty and the district. The following information is from The Shared Governance Handbook. The SCC provides a "cooperative means of improving the educational programs and conditions" within the school.  Decisions and responsibilities allocated to the SCC by the Utah law includes:

  • Developing a School Improvementa Plan (SIP)
  • Developing the School LAND Trust Program
  • Assisting in the development and implementation of a school professional development plan
  • Develop and implement a child access routing plan (safe walking routes to and from school)
  • Advising and making recommendations to school and school district administrators and the local school board regarding the school and its programs, school district programs, and other issues relating to the community environment for students

To carry out these responsibilities, members of the SCC must plan to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Identify the school's most critical academic needs and recommend courses of action to meet those needs
  • Review the school budgets, state assessments, and other information provided by the principal, to develop a school improvement plan specific enough to produce a measurable increase in student performance
  • Develop a list of programs, practices, materials or equipment the school will need to implement its improvement plan
  • Describe how the school intends to enhance or improve academic achievement. Include all financial resources available to the school: School LAND Trust Program monies, state, federal, local and private grants
  • See the local reporting requirements for performance and accountability are reflected it the school improvement plan
  • Provide ongoing support for the plan and monitor its implementation
