General information about Hawthorne’s School Community Council: 

Parents  and interested community members are invited to attend SCC meetings and to express their concerns, to put forth issues for consideration and to give their input on school goals with voting council members.

Meetings are the first Monday of every month (specific dates are listed above) at 6:00 pm in the library. Changes to this calendar will be posted when they arise. 
 
As published by the Utah State Office of Education - 
The purpose and duties of SCC:
School community councils are responsible for preparing plans that are submitted to the school board for approval. They also should assist, as needed, and provide support for the implementation of the approved plans. School community council members are to represent the group that elected them to the school community council, as they make decisions and bring issues to the school community council for consideration.
They may form subcommittees or task forces to address an issue or project and bring it to the school community council for approval. They are a good resource to school and district administrators in bringing issues of concern forward and in providing feedback, upon request.
The school plans for which the school community council has responsibility for developing are:
• The School Improvement Plan
• The School LAND Trust Plan
• The Reading Achievement Plan (elementary)
• The Child Access Routing Plan (all but high schools)
• They also assist in the development of the Professional Development Plan but this plan is ultimately approved and submitted by staff
