School Community Council (SCC)
“The Utah State Legislature passed a law in 2000 requiring every public school in the state to establish a School Community Council* at the school-site level (Utah Code. Section 53A-1a-108). Two years later the legislature passed a second bill mandating several changes in the duties, powers and membership of the School Community Councils in Utah. This law took effect July 1, 2002.”
