School Community Council (SCC)

The Uintah School Community Council meets monthly to discuss important issues pertinent to the success of Uintah students and families. Our topics include: School Success Plans, School LAND Trust fund usage, implementation of the Wellness Policy, community engagement, and other topics of interest to the school community. Parents have a direct role in helping to shape the policies around these issues as well as how the Trustlands monies are spent. For instance, during the 2020-2021 school year, Uintah received over $60,000 in Trustlands funds! The SSC decided to spend the money to help pay for our English Language Development teacher to work with our MLL population along with other students who are struggling and need help. Money was also spent on paraprofessionals who worked with small groups of students or one-on-one with those who need extra help and support while we were remote and while we were in-person. Some funds were also spent to purchase hands-on science materials for students to use while remote and while in-person. As a result of this financial support, we had several MLL students who scored proficient on the WIDA language assessment and many other students who made academic growth which would not have been possible without the help of paraprofessionals supporting students and teachers. 

For the year 2021-2022, the Uintah SCC decided to use the bulk of our Trustlands funds to continue to pay for our English Language Development teacher, so that she can help our students who are learning English as a second language. She will also be working with our students with disabilities and with other students who may need extra support. The remaining money was used to help fund paraprofessionals to help with student learning as well as to purchase science or technology supplies for the school. As a result of this support, several more students scored proficient on the WIDA language assessment and the school was able to increase the percent of students who scored proficient on the End-of-Level tests by 8% in L.A., 3.5% in Math, and 11% in science. Way to go!
