The School Community Council (SCC) plays an important role in partnering in the education of our children with the school, its staff and faculty and the district.  The following information is from The Shared Goverance Handbook.  The SCC provides a "cooperative means of improving the educational programs and conditions" within the school.  Decisions and responsibilities allocated to the SCC by the Utah law includes:

  • Developing a School Improvement Plan (SIP)

 REVIEW of 2016-2017 Expenditures:

For 2016-2017, Trust Land Funds actual expenditures for Taylor Elemetnary was $34,718.  An additional 2nd grade teacher was hired, with additional funding from Title I budget, to reduce class sizes in the primary grades from 27 students to 20 students.  This allowed teachers more opportunities to do early interventions.  We also hired intervention specialist to assist students who were below benchmark level to receive additional instructional support and interventions.
