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, this past year Uintah received over $60,000 in Trustlands funds! The SSC decided to spend the money to help pay for paraprofessionals who work with small groups of students or one-on-one with students who need extra help and support as well as to help purchase science materials for students. For the year 2020-2021, the Uintah SCC decided ot use the bulk of our Trustlands funds to help 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 may be used to help fund paraprofessionals to help with our distance learning plans as well as to purchase science or technology supplies for students.
