Meeting Agendas and Minutes

School Trusts Lands were granted by the United States to each state joining the union. When Utah entered the union it was granted four sections (a section is one square mile of land) per township. Beginning in 2000, by state law every public school in the district established a School Community Council at the school level (Utah Code. Section 53A-1a-108).

We will inform those that do not have internet access about Community Council through our back to school newsletters. Parents have open access to the computers in our lab to view the web site, too.

Parents, you have the opportunity to serve and make decisions about the School TrustLands Funds. If they would like to be on the committee to talk to Principal Nelson. Nominations and voting taking place at the beginning of the school year. All meetings are open to our community stakeholders, too.
