School Community Council

Canyon Elementary School Community Council

 The School Community Council (SCC) plays an important role in partnering in the education of our children with the school, its staff and faculty and the district.  The following information is from The Shared Governance Handbook.  The SCC provides a "cooperative means of improving the educational programs and conditions" within the school.  Decisions and responsibilities allocated to the SCC by the Utah law includes:

  • Developing a School Improvement Plan (SIP)
  • Developing the School LAND Trust Program
  • Assisting in the development and implementation of a school professional development plan
  • Develop and implement a child access routing plan (safe walking routes to and from school)
  • Advising and making recommendations to school and school district administrators and the local school board regarding the school and its programs, school district programs, and other issues relating to the community environment for students
  • Developing a reading achievement plan.


The most critical academic needs identified in the Canyon Elementary plan are as follows:

  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics 

Trust Land funds expenditures for the benefit of students:

  •  Salaries for intervention specialists to help at-risk learners;
  •  Technology licenses for reading and math intervention,
  •  Curriculum professional development for staff,
  •  Classroom technology

Estimated allocated budget for 2023-2024: $63,350 

Every year we have positions available on our School Community Council and we would love for you to join! Elections will be held in May. Parents act as the primary advocates for our children here at Canyon Elementary. Parent engagement is a key element to student achievement and student progress. Parents have at least a two-member majority of a school community council, and are often the driving force that helps strengthen our school. It is important that parents on the council understand the responsibilities of the council, and are able to collaborate well with the other members of the council to effect meaningful school improvement for all children. If you are interested in running for a position on the School Community Council, please contact Ms. Marcy Caldwell (principal) or Mrs. Foht (SCC Facilitator).
