We Invite Community Participation

The school community council gives educational stakeholders the opportunity to have direct input regarding resources and expenditures allotted to schools from the state of Utah’s Land Trust funds. The community council gives parents, teachers, and administration an opportunity to be a member of a group that discusses the allocation of these funds for academic improvement.

Please contact the school principal, Julie Smith, at if you are interested in becoming a future member of the Community Council.

Our HAL groups will be held during WIN time, and students will be provided extension activities and instruction.  


Digital Citizenship:


Our School Community Council is primarily responsible for the creation of our School LAND Trust Plan. This plan is created annually by analyzing our school testing data to determine the greatest academic need. The money our school receives from the School LAND Trust fund is allocated according to our plan.

Our school is grateful for the School LAND Trust program and the opportunity we have as a school to allocate the funds to support our targeted and specific needs. The Council assists with school improvement, and make decisions on how to best spend the Trust LANDS funding. 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
