Bryce Valley Elementary's Community Council

What is a Community Council?

Every Utah public school has a school community council consisting of the principal, an elected school employee, and a majority of elected parents. All meetings are open to the public and parents or guardians are invited to attend School Community Council meetings. Meeting agendas are posted on this website one week prior to each meeting.

Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands. Our council decides how these funds will be used. The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year. All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board. Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations. If you are interested in serving as a member of the School Community Council, please contact the school principal.

To learn more about community councils, visit the School Land Trust website.

In our Community Council Meetings we discuss:

  • School Programs & District Programs

  • Safe Routes to School

  • Internet Filtering at School

  • Safe Technology Use and Digital Citizenship

  • School and District Safety Principles

Here are the Rules of Order that we use during our meetings
