School Community Council is the forum in which parents and guardians can contribute and have direct input in the following ways:
- Meet once monthly to support school improvement and student success through shared decision-making
- 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 Land Trust Plan as part of the Teacher and Student Success Plan (TSSP) (formerly the "School Improvement Plan") and how funds should be allocated in order to improve our school. Please take a minute to read the 2019-20 School Land Trust Plan and our 2020-21 TSSA 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. Nominations will be called for the first week of August. If elections become necessary, they will be held annually in the third week of August. Elections will be held online and in-person. More information will be sent electronically to parents and available in the front office in August.
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 second Tuesday of each month at 3:00p.m. in room 34. A tentative schedule of meeting for the 2020-21 school year can be found HERE.
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 2018-19. During this year we distributed approximately $122,000 for the following: TBD
