School Community Council





For the 2020-21 school year, all SCC meetings will be held via ZOOM due to COVID-19. Check back soon for the date and time of our next meeting. Hope to see you there!

School Community Councils (SCC's) improve educational programs and conditions at public schools. Councils operate using the shared governance approach: collaborative, site-based decision making to meet individual school improvement goals. Every public school in Utah has a community council consisting of two elected groups: parents (that’s you!) and teachers/administrators. 

The Westvale SCC has responsibilities defined both by the Jordan School District and the Utah Legislature. Two of our biggest responsibilities are assisting in the development of School Improvement Plans (SIP's) and LAND Trust Plans. SCC's also work on issues brought forth by parents, staff, and faculty.

School Community Council Meetings

We invite you to attend Westvale Elementary SCC meetings to learn about our greatest academic needs, our School Improvement Plan, and help in the decision-making process for using LAND Trust funds. At Westvale we also regularly discuss school safety, budgets, share district news, and talk about other important issues affecting our school. You have a voice and together we can make a positive difference in the education of our children!
