School Community Council

About the Council

Our School Community Council is dedicated to the success and achievement of our children. The Utah State Legislature created these councils with three purposes in mind. The first is “To build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees and administrators.” Second, “To allow parents an opportunity to be actively involved, with the school, in their children’s education.” And third, “To enhance academic excellence at the school and address the needs of students.”

The Council invites any who would like to attend a Community Council meeting to do so. These meetings are an opportunity to share ideas, voice a concern, or ask questions concerning Title 1, the School Improvement Plan, our School Land Trust Plan, the Reading Achievement Plan, or Hillcrest’s Child Access Routing Plan. We welcome patrons to attend any of the meetings listed below for the 2014-2015 school year. (Note: the agenda and minutes for each meeting can be viewed by clicking the appropriate web link below.) Sobre el Consejo
