- Develop a plan for the allocation of School LAND Trust money and other school plans
- Examine important school issues and consider solutions
- Disseminate information to the community about school progress and student success
- Bring new ideas and concerns from the community to the school administration
- Help promote the many successes of Diamond Fork Junior High School
School Community Council is intregal in developing the Diamond Fork School Improvement Plan and how funds should be allocated in order to improve our school. Please take a minute to read the 2018-19 Diamond Fork School Improvement Plan.
If you would like to be a part of the council in the future you do have the opportunity to run for a seat on the council next year.
You are invited to attend School Community Council meetings.
Diamond Fork Jr. High School Community Council meetings are always open to the public and your input is invited and welcome. You may attend as often as you like and your ideas will be heard and considered. Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 3:00p.m. in the school's Counseling Center conference room.

Each year we have the opportunity to distribute LAND Trust Program monies for the benefit of our school. At the beginning of each school year we give an update of how funds were spent for the previous school year, in this case 2014-15. During this year we distributed approximately $75,000 for the following: six sections of English for class size reduction, reading specialist technician, professional development, two part-time math technicians, continuation of our Latinos in Action program, and an at-risk credit recovery program.
If you would like to know more about Trust Lands and the role of the Community Council, you may reference the official School LAND Trust Program website.
