School Community Council very public school in Utah has a School Community Council (SCC). These councils are comprised of parents (who are elected by parents of students attending the school), the school principal, and school employees (who are elected by other employees). Elections for the SCC at Orem High School are held at the beginning of each school year. There are always at least two more parents on the SCC than school employees. Membership terms are two years.
The main purposes of the SCC are to develop, approve, and assist in implementing the School Improvement Plan, and to allocate LAND Trust funds based on this plan. The council reviews and prepares this plan and allocation of funds each year. All plans are reviewed for final approval by the district school board. The SCC also acts as an advisory committee to the administration. The School Community Council meets on the third Tuesday of every month. This is a great opportunity to be more involved in the school, and to ensure the fund allocated from Trust Lands is used to better serve student learning at Orem High School. If you are interested in learning more or in joining the SCC, please contact the SCC Chair, Aerwyn Whitlock at [email protected]
Information such as minutes of the meetings, the names and contact information for council members, dates and times of meetings, and previous LAND Trust plans can be found at http://ohs.alpineschools.org/ptsa-and-sccinformation. For those who cannot access this information via the internet, SCC information is available in the Main Office upon request.
