Park School Community Council

School Community Council

Purpose:  The purpose of the School Community Council is to build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees, and administrators; allowing parents an opportunity to be actively involved in their children's education by helping establish and implement educational goals for their respective schools.  In this regard, the responsibilities of the School Community Council are advisory in nature.  

The School Community Council (SCC) 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 Improvement 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
  • Developing a reading achievement plan.

The most critical academic needs identified in the Park Elementary plan are as follows:

  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics 
  • Technology
  • Fine Arts

Trust Land funds expenditures for the benefit of students:

  •  Salaries for intervention specialists to help at-risk learners;
  •  Technology licenses for reading and math intervention,
  •  Curriculum professional development for staff,
  •  Substitutes during curriculum mapping days,
  •  Classroom technology (iPads, ChromeBooks, audio enhancement, etc.)  

We are always looking for parents to join our School Community Council. We hold elections at the beginning of May each year for the following school year. Please reach out to the Principal if you are willing to serve on this wonderful council.
