Community Council

Creating Inclusive School Community Councils

Parent participation on school community councils is important. Councils prepare, adopt, and implement education plans at their school. A majority of Utah parents are still unaware and unengaged, and many school community councils are not reflective of the diverse communities they represent. Building equitable representation from within the councils will give our state a greater community asset.


Why Participate

Improved student success and well-being for ALL students
Engaged parent representation in decision-making will allow for greater equity
A diverse pool of parent viewpoints helps bridge cultural gaps


How

Successful parent involvement on school community councils happens when:

Expectations are clear and happen logistically so all parents have the opportunity to participate.
Training is provided for all. Councils may need to pay attention to the time of the meetings, cultural nuances, language barriers, childcare, etc.

Investing in parents allows them to see results from their involvement.
They choose to continue being involved and encourage others to participate.
Parents now become advocates, mentors, and community assets for increased parental involvement.

Qualifications

Every public school in Utah has a School Community Council. The councils are made up of school employees who are elected by employees and parents who are elected by parents of students attending the school. Membership terms are generally for two years. Elections are held at the beginning of each school year. Parent members must have a student attending the school for at least one of the two years of their term of service. Employees must be employed by the school district at the school.
