Hillcrest Jr. High School – Community Council 2021-2022

Who is the School Community Council and what do they do?

Every school must have a School Community Council that consists of the principal, school employees and parents. The majority of members are parents. Parents represent parent perspectives on issues and in votes made by the council.

The council is responsible to review and propose changes to academic school plans each year. The School Improvement Plan and School LAND Trust Plan outline the student’s greatest academic needs and include an action plan to address them. Both plans are approved by the local school board and then implemented at the school. The School LAND Trust Plan is implemented with funds that increase every year. The council decides how the money is to be spent in the plan.

Councils have other responsibilities:

§ Parents may bring issues of concern to the council seeking solutions. The council may choose to address them or recommend another group or entity better suited to implement solutions.

§ The council may also create programs or projects to improve the parent, student, and faculty school experience.

§ They may make recommendations to the administration of the school and district

Serving on our School Community Council is a great way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school.  The school receives an annual dividend from the School Trust Lands.  For 2021-2022 this amount comes out to $132,722.  Our council decides how these funds will be used.  The council also reviews and prepares other academic and safety plans for our students each year.  All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board.  Councils also act in an advisory capacity to the school and district administrators. To view total revenue from Land Trust budgets please refer to the school land trust plan listed below.
