School Community Council


West Jordan Elementary SCC Mission Statement

 WJE SCC strives to empower our students by enhancing their knowledge, effective problem-solving skills, and desire to become lifelong learners. We are dedicated to encouraging our school community to stay actively involved and informed on the school’s greatest academic achievements as well as needs.

What is the School Community Council

The School Community Council a group of parents, guardians, teachers, and school staff who are elected to represent the greater school community.  Some of the responsibilities of the SCC are to review, discuss and approve of academic improvement plans, staff development plans, allocation of LAND Trust money and to provide a forum for community discussions of school-related concerns.

Why Community Council

If you have a concern, opinion or suggestion relating to:

  • Curriculum
  • Student activities
  • Transportation
  • Building maintenance
  • Proposed boundary changes
  • Student safety
  • Legislative issues
  • Any other issues

We can help!  This is the place to express your feelings and to work for positive changes in our school.  Please let your voice be heard.  (While decisions regarding Jordan School District policies, budgets, laws and personnel issues are not things we can change, we can pass on concerns about these to the School District.)
