School Community Council (SCC)
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!

SCC Meetings are held one Tuesday per month at 4pm in the Wasatch Elementary Library and on Zoom.
