Welcome to our schools Community Council. Our purpose is to address the academic needs of students at the local level by evaluating and providing opportunities and programs for their benefit.
Community members are welcome to attend council meetings, but do not hold influence over council discussion points or decisions. If you have a concern for your Community Council, please reach out prior to the meeting to one of the council members so your concern can be added to the agenda.
Council Members are chosen by election and are a mixture of school staff and community members. Candidacy and election procedures begin before each school year.
Serving on the Community Council allows parents to directly influence the way LAND Trust funds are used during the school year, which can include programs, materials, and other education-based solutions.
LAND Trust is a school funding program that provides discretionary funds for academic and student success. For more information about this program, visit the LAND Trust Program website.
The actual, current, and expected funding history for each school can be found online using the LAND Trust Funding Report.
These are additional resources that explain more about Community Council.
Voting is not in progress at this time.

School Community Councils are elected parent/guardian and employee representatives who work together with the principal to increase student achievement. By law, the Council is responsible to review school data and develop plans for school improvement. Councils also allocate the LAND Trust funds to assist the school in reaching achievement goals. Please visit the Granite School District's Community Council page for more information regarding the roles and responsibilities of Community Councils.
Parents elect parent representatives and employees elect employees for two-year terms. To be eligible, a parent must have a student enrolled in the school for at least one of the years and may not be a contract employee at the school. We invite you to become involved in your school’s Community Council by declaring your candidacy.
We only keep minutes for the current school year and the previous school year. If you need older minutes, please reach out to a council member, and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
