School Community Council

UPDATE (09/29/2016): The Land Trust Funding Distribution for Bingham High School for the 2016-2017 school year is $178,559.00 (increased distribution of $17,050.00) plus a carry-over from 2015-2016 of $19,470.70. Total funding available for 2016-2017 through Land Trust Funding equals $198,029.70.

Bingham High’s current School Community Council has a number of members who are parents of our juniors and seniors.  We would be happy to add more members who are parents of those students, but are specifically looking to add parents who have sophomore students.  We meet four times a year, roughly once a quarter.  UPDATE on 9/13/2016 - Land Trust Funding Distribution for Bingham High School for the 2016-2017 school year has been increased from the estimate of $161,509.00 to an actual of $178,559.00.

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. In accordance with state law, “Each public school, in consultation with its local school board, shall establish a school community council at the school building level.”  Duties of the Community Council include the following: 

·         Develop a School Improvement Plan

·         Develop a School LAND Trust Program

·         Assist in the development and implementation of a Staff Development Plan

·         Advise and make recommendations to school and District administrators and to the School Board when appropriate

·         Create subcommittees and task forces as needed             

There [will be] four meetings scheduled for the 2016-17 school year: 

·         Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM in the Bingham High School Media Center

·        Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM in the Bingham High School Media Center
