  • Review bylaws – on website
    • Committee consideration to change wording of the following currently in our bylaws: The number of School Community Council members will be limited to 10 parent representatives and 4 school employee members, 
      • Feedback was that it is unclear. Is it limited up to 10 or must be 10?
    • One suggestion for change would be adjusting to Utah’s default criteria, if not stated otherwise is school bylaws/Rules of Order:
      • SCC suggestion: Unless otherwise specified in Rules of Order & Procedure and approved by an SCC prior to elections, council membership is: at least 4 parent members, and at least 2 school employee members (including principal) for an elementary or middle/jr. high school. The School Community Council must have a 2-parent majority.

  • School Plan updates
    • Funding is based on enrollment, our enrollment is lower than anticipated as well.  Currently, 345 students, about 100 students less than last year. We anticipated about 50 less. 
    • LandTrust funding allocated is $57,058.75 for 2023-2024 compared to $56,854 last year.
      • Schools were told to anticipate additional funding, but recognizing that our enrollment would be down, we used last year’s allocation of $56,854 for planning.

  • Request to move $3000 cell tower funds to principal discretionary funds

  • Approve Next Month’s Agenda
