Learning Now and for the Future

What is the School Community Council?

A school community council is a committee made up of parents and school professionals who help determine the needs of our school and the best methods and programs to support those needs through the School Land Trust Program.  Members of the school community council will meet together approximately 6-8 times during the school year to discuss the school’s most critical academic needs, the School Land Trust plan, and its implementation. Council members also give input for the school’s safe routing plan and digital citizenship/internet safety.
Parents who wish to become involved with the Community Council can contact the principal for information. Elections for open council positions are held each fall. Community Council meetings are open to the public.
You can find out about Community Councils and School Land Trust plans, including our school plan, funding levels, and other information, at http://www.schoollandtrust.org/
