School Community Council (SCC)

The School Community Council (SCC) is a shared governance council formed by the parents and staff of Newman Elementary in accordance with state law. The SCC was established in 1974 by the Salt Lake School Board, which has empowered each SCC to make decisions regarding their school.

The SCC is a cooperative means to improving the educational programs and conditions of the school. It is the responsibility of the SCC to decide all issues on the basis of what is in the best interest of the children.

It is a wonderful opportunity: to be aware of the administration and activities of the school and the considerations that go into making decisions, to offer viewpoints, and to participate in the best interest of all of our students.

Who are the members of SCC? Parents, Faculty & Staff, Principal, and PTA President.

What are typical issues addressed by the SCC? School Improvement Plan, Grant Applications, Program Development/Review, Achievement, School Calendar, Attendance/Discipline, School Trust Land Issues

Our meetings are held on the same Thursday nights as Family Night’s at 5:30 PM. Agendas and minutes will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the main office, and on this site. Please take some time to read the posted information and stay informed about our school!
