About School Community Councils:

A school community council is a committee made up of parents and school professionals who help determine the needs of our school and the best methods and programs to support those needs through the School LAND Trust Program.  School Community Councils are dedicated to the success and achievement of our students. 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.”

About Council Meetings

School Community Council meetings are an opportunity to share ideas, voice a concern, present ideas as to how the council might spent future School LAND Trust allocations, or ask questions concerning school plans that the council oversees, namely the School Improvement and School LAND Trust Plan, the Digital Citizenship Plan, and our School Access Route Plan. We welcome patrons to attend any of the meetings listed on our meeting  schedule for the current school year, which can be found on this webpage.  Additional meeting information, including agendas and minutes, is also available here.

Consider Serving on the Council

We invite interested parents to consider serving on the School Community Council in future years.  Interested parents are able to submit a nomination form to be included on the election ballot.  Elections take place in the fall at the start of the school year.  Information on upcoming council vacancies and the election process is provided by the principal at the start of every school year.  For more information, please contact Principal LaBare at 801-610-8702.

School Community Council CalendarTeacher & Student Success Act (TSSA)

The Cedar Valley Elementary individual school improvement/TSSA plan has been developed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students.  Our teachers and staff are committed to improving student literacy proficiency school-wide.  We plan to focus specifically on our special education students to ensure they make typical or better growth.  Each student and adult in our building will also gain a greater sense of connection to the school and to one another through the utilization of our social and emotional well-being curriculum (MindUp!), our SEW specialty classes, and our school counselor’s SEW lessons. Our house system will also reinforce this connection with a focus on responsibility, respect, kindness, and perseverance. To help meet this goal, we have received $23,176 in TSSA allocation from the State of Utah.  This allocation will specifically be used to pay for instructional aide support ($20,276) and literacy instruction materials ($2,900).  This program has helped Cedar Valley Elementary consistently score above district and state student proficiency results on end of year testing.
