School Community Council (SCC)

Meeting dates and information for the 2022-2023 school year will be posted this summer.

School Community Council

School Community Councils (SCCs) improve educational programs and conditions at public schools. Councils operate using the shared governance approach: collaborative, site-based decision making to meet individual school improvement goals. Every public school in Utah has a community council consisting of two elected groups: parents (that’s you!) and teachers/administrators.

The Wasatch SCC has responsibilities defined both by the Salt Lake City School District and the Utah Legislature.  Two of our biggest responsibilities are assisting in the development of Excellence & Equity Plans (EEPs) and LAND Trust Plans. SCCs also work on issues brought forth by parents, staff, and faculty (local examples are South Temple Safety and emergency preparedness).

How can I get involved with my Wasatch SCC?

  • Attend meetings! – monthly at Wasatch
  • Read the minutes! – available on this page
  • Become an elected member! – parents represent their neighborhood communities and serve a 2-year term

School Community Council Meetings

We invite you to attend the Wasatch Elementary SCC meetings to learn about our greatest academic needs, our School Improvement Plan, and help in the decision-making process for using LAND Trust funds. At Wasatch we also regularly discuss school safety, budgets, share District news, and talk about other important issues affecting our school. You have a voice! Together we can make a positive difference in the education of our children!

School LAND Trust Fund Report

Land Trust 2021-2022

This school year, Wasatch will receive $43,775 in Learning and Nurturing Development (LAND) Trust funds.  In addition, we had a carryover from the previous year of $1,342.  LAND Trust funds will continue to support our Technology program, which includes the salary of our Technology Specialist as well as the purchase of added equipment as the needs arise. LAND Trust funds will be utilized to pay half of the salary for a kindergarten aide.  Our kindergarten aides support our kindergarten classrooms, providing needed support for both Tier 1 and Tier 2 instruction.  This year, we hired a paraprofessional who will provide interventions for our students needing extra academic support.  Funding has also been set aside to provide on-going professional development for teachers and staff to assist us with achieving our School Improvement Goals, especially in the areas of writing and closing the achievement gap between our low-income and non low-income students.
