School Community Council

Who is the School Community Council and what do they do?  Every school must have a School Community Council (SCC) that consists of the principal, school employees and parents. The majority of members are parents. Parents represent parent perspectives on issues and decisions made by the council. Parents have input in the School Improvement Plan and in how the funds from the School LAND Trust Program will be spent. Parents have the majority vote.  

  •  Parents may bring issues of concern to the council seeking solutions. The council may choose to address them or recommend another group or entity better suited to implement solutions.  

  • The council may also create programs or projects to improve the parent, student & faculty school experience  

  • They may make recommendations to the administration of the school and district.
