School Community Council (SCC)

For school year, 2021-22,  School Community Council (SSC) meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6 PM in the Whittier library or via Zoom


The concept of Shared Governance has been implemented in the Salt Lake City School District since 1973. It was established to enable teachers, staff and community to participate in the decision making process of the school. Shared Governance operates under consensus and is implemented through the School Improvement Council (S.I.C.) and the School Community Council (S.C.C.).

The School Community Council is composed of:

  • PTA president and officers
  • school administration
  • SIC chair and teacher representative(s)
  • community representative

The purpose and duties of SCC:
School community councils are responsible for preparing plans that are submitted to the school board for approval. They also should assist, as needed, and provide support for the implementation of the approved plans. School community council members are to represent the group that elected them to the school community council, as they make decisions and bring issues to the school community council for consideration.
They may form subcommittees or task forces to address an issue or project and bring it to the school community council for approval. They are a good resource to school and district administrators in bringing issues of concern forward and in providing feedback, upon request.
The school plans for which the school community council has responsibility for developing are:

  • The School Improvement Plan
  • The School LAND Trust Plan
  • The Reading Achievement Plan (elementary)
  • The Child Access Routing Plan (all but high schools)
  • They also assist in the development of the Professional Development Plan but this plan is ultimately approved and submitted by staff
