What is the SCC?

General Information: “The School Community Council (SCC) is comprised of parents, school employees, and the principal.  The Council has statutory responsibilities to develop the School Improvement and LAND Trust plans which are focused on increasing student achievement in our school and may include provisions for professional development.  Throughout the school year, the SCC reviews school data, identifies academic needs, sets measurable goals, establishes action steps to reach those goals, and evaluates success of the plans.  This gives parents and school employees opportunity to be involved in the decision making process at the local school level.

Purpose: Each public school is required by law to have a school community council (SCC).  The purposes are to build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees, and administrators.  The SCC allows parents to be actively involved with the school in the education of their children.  

Responsibilities:  The parents, school administration and faculty work together to administer the School Improvement Plan, Safe Walking Plan, and the School Land Trust Plan.  The SCC is responsible for determining how the LAND Trust funds are used in our school.  When Utah was granted Statehood, parcels of land were placed in a perpetual Trust with the children of Utah as beneficiaries.  Revenues from these lands go into the Permanent State School Fund. The dividends and interest of that fund are distributed annually to each public school in Utah.  Our school received $78,898.00 during the 2020-2021 school year.  Additionally the SCC serves as an advisory council to the school and district administration as well as the Canyons District Board of Education. In this role, an SCC fosters communication between the school and the community on local school issues.  The School Community Council is a vital partner in fulfilling the mission of Canyons School District: Every student will graduate college-and-career ready.  In addition, the SCC at Sandy Elementary puts together an amazing school carnival for our community.

Community Input Invited:  The School Community Council (SCC) invites and encourages all parents, faculty, and staff to attend SCC meetings and volunteer to help with SCC activities.  Meetings are held in the conference room and the meeting schedule can be found below.  Meeting notices will be posted in the entry way of Sandy Elementary at least one week prior to each meeting. The SCC board is maintained through an election process. To learn more about the election process, or to request to be a member of our SCC, please contact Principal Walker at shawn.walker@canyonsdistrict.org.  Our SCC calendar, agendas, and meeting minutes can all be found on this website.
