What is the School Community Council?

School Community Council–we are looking for 5-8 parents to participate in our SCC for the coming year.  It is a two-year commitment.  We have meetings on a monthly basis.  This past year those meetings have been on the 3rd Wednesday at 3:30. Meetings run about 1-1½ hours.  The SCC reviews the school goals, sets the Landtrust and TSSP Budgets, works with the school personnel to review data and refine or set different goals for the coming years.  Our goals over the past few years have focused on literacy and math.  Once we have a committee for the coming year, we will set a meeting schedule with the new members and their schedules.  If you are interested in participating on the SCC for the 2022-2023 school year, please contact  Ms. Genny Poll, genny.poll@canyonsdistrict.org.  Our first meeting will be on Sept. 7 at 3:30. 

Butler Middle School’s School Community Council (SCC) is made up of parents from the community and teachers from the staff of Butler Middle School. Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents to be actively involved in their children’s education. Each year, the school receives a distribution of funds from Utah’s School LAND Trust Program, and it’s the Council’s job to prioritize how these funds will be used to address the school’s greatest academic needs. School Community Councils hold elections once a year to fill open seats, and are comprised of parents and school employees, including the principal. Parents make up the majority of the Council, outnumbering employees by at least two. Working together, Council members review school data, identify school needs, establish school goals (or a success plan), and allocate LAND Trust funds toward accomplishing those goals. School Community Councils also discuss school digital and safety plans, and throughout the year, serve as an advisory group to the school principal, district administrators, and the Canyons Board of Education. In this role, the Council fosters communication between the school and the community on local school issues, and is a vital partner in fulfilling Canyons’ college- and career-readiness mission. Resources to assist Council members in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities can be found on Canyons District’s website.
