What is SCC?

Purpose: Each public school is required by law to have a school community council (SCC).  The purposes are to build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees and administrators.  The SCC allows parents to be actively involved with the school in the education of their children.

Responsibilities: The parents, school administration and faculty work together to administer the School Improvement Plan, Safe Walking Plan and the School Land Trust Plan.  In addition, the SCC advises the school administration on local issues and provides an opportunity to present accolades as well as issues of concern.  The SCC may also coordinate one school wide fundraiser each year and utilize those funds to benefit Canyon View students, teachers and building.  

SCC and PTA: The School Community Council is a separate entity from the Parent Teacher Association.  The SCC’s focus is on school achievement, safety, and how we function within the School District and State.

Community Input Invited: The SCC invites and encourages all parents, faculty and staff to attend SCC meetings and volunteer to help with SCC activities.  Our SCC meeting calendar, agendas and minutes can be found on the Canyon View Elementary School websiteunder Community - School Community Council.pdf.png2014-2015 LT Final Report.pdf pdf.pngLand Trust Final Report 15-16.pdf

Opportunities to serve: Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance ant our school.  The school receives and annual dividend from the School Trust Lands.  Our council decides how these funds will be used.  The council also aact in an advisory capacity to the school and district administrators.
