What is Community Council?

Our School Community Council is primarily responsible for the creation of our School LAND Trust Plan. This plan is created annually by analyzing our school testing data to determine the greatest academic need. The money our school receives from the School LAND Trust fund is allocated according to our plan. Over the years our school has purchased technology to support student learning, books for our leveled library, math manipulatives, science materials, and we’ve been able to hire additional personnel to support targeted learning in small groups. Our school is grateful for the School LAND Trust program and the opportunity we have as a school to allocate the funds to support our targeted and specific needs. The Council assists with school improvement, and make decisions on how to best spend the Trust LANDS funding. More information regarding the work of the Council and the current plan can be found by visiting the School LAND Trust Website:

Council Responsibilities

  • Review school U-PASS data. U-PASS is a series of student tests.  Councils should review group results but individual data should not be shared. Other assessments may also be reviewed
  • Develop a School Improvement Plan
  • Develop a School LAND Trust Plan
  • Participate in the development of the Professional Development Plan
  • Advise the school administration on local school issues
  • Provide an opportunity for issues of concern in the community to be presented to the school administration.

Elections for the Community Council take place each year in August. This is one of the many ways that we encourage our school community to become involved in the education process.
