Community Council

Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school.  The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands.  Our council decides how these funds will be used.  Last year our school received $70,245.00 from the School LAND Trust Program.  The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year.  All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board.  Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations.

If you are interested in being part of the School Community Council for this year, please email the School at or stop by the office.

Council Responsibilities

  • Review school U-PASS data. U-PASS is a series of student tests.  Councils should review group results but individual data should not be shared. Other assessments may also be reviewed
  • Develop a School Improvement Plan
  • Develop a School LAND Trust Plan
  • Participate in the development of the Professional Development Plan
  • Develop a Child Access Routing Plan
  • Advise the school administration on local school issues
  • Provide an opportunity for issues of concern in the community to be presented to the school administration
  • Develop a Reading Achievement Plan

More information regarding the work of the Council and the current plan can be found by visiting the School LAND Trust Website: School Land Trust
