SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL ELECTIONS
What is a School Community Council? The School Community Council (SCC) is a group of elected parent/guardian and employee representatives who work together with the principal to increase student achievement and address school safety. By law, the SCC is responsible to review school data and develop plans for school improvement. The SCC is an advisory group that helps with the development of the school’s Land Trust Plan, Teacher and Student Success Plan, School Safety Plan, Digital Citizenship Plan, and Positive Behavior Plan. For more information about the SCC, go to www.canyonsdistrict.org/scc.
How do I join the SCC? Parents elect parent representatives and employees elect employee representatives for a two-year term. To be eligible, a parent must have a student enrolled in the school for at least one of the years. A parent representative may work for the district, but not this school. The SCC must have two parent representatives more than employee representatives. Elections are held in the fall. We currently have FIVE parent openings. Nominations will be open until August 16th at 3:30 PM. The election will take place August 18th through the 24th.
We invite you to become involved in your school’s Community Council by declaring your candidacy. Please return this form by August 16th at 3:30 PM to Principal Scott Jameson firstname.lastname@example.org.
