WHAT DOES THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL DO?
The SCC (School Community Council) plays an important role in partnering with the school, it’s staff and the district in the education of our children. 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
- Developing and implementing 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 it’s programs, the school district programs, and other issue relating to the community environment for students
- Developing a reading achievement plan
The Fox Hollow Community Council is made up of two faculty members, one administrator and five parents. Legislation requires that parents be engaged in developing school improvement plans for every school. The council meets on a regular basis during the school year. Council members may have involvement in other sub-committees for other programs at the school.
The Council members are:
- An advisory Group
- Ambassadors for the school
- Advocates for the school programs and children
