Community Council

Welcome to our school Community Council page!

The purpose of the Community Council is to involve parents in decision making at the school level.  Elected parents represent the parents of the school and participate in developing plans for improving the school, make decisions on how to best expend School LAND Trust Program monies, and increase public awareness of school trust lands and related policies.

Serving on the School's Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school. The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands, and the Community Council decides how these funds will be used.  (All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board and by the State Board of Education.)  This year Bountiful Jr. received approximately $74,000.00 from the School LAND Trust Program.  The Council can also propose, and/or review and prepare academic plans for our students each year and can act in an advisory capacity to school and district administrations.

Term:  2 Years maximum.  Must have a student at BJH during at least the 1st of the 2 years.

Meetings:  Minimum of once per term, with more meetings as determined by the Council

Meeting Times:  7:30 am (subject to change based on the new Councils determination)

Meeting Duration:  1 hour
