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 how Land Trust funds are used at 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.

During the 2019-20 school year Land Trust funds totaled $51,130 and was used to fund a teacher salary and reading curriculum.  Our current school year funds total $43, 285 and will be used to fund a teacher salary and technology.

Land Trust funds also require that an academic school goal is tied to fund expenditures.  During the 2019-20 school year we set a goal to improve reading scores by 4%.  At the midpoint of last school year we were on track to achieve or exceed this goal.  However, due to COVID-19 we were not able to get end of year reading scores.  For the 2020-21 school year we will strive again to produce 4% reading growth.

Consider joining Newman’s SCC.  It is a wonderful opportunity.  SCC Board elections will be held again for the 2021-22 school year in May 2021.

Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. During remote learning we will meet on Zoom. Agendas with Zoom links and minutes are posted on this website.
