Community Council

General Information

The Desert Hills Middle School Community Council serves as an advisory group to our school and is comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators.  The Council assists and provides guidance in the development of our school improvement plan and oversees the distribution of State Learning and Nurturing Development (LAND) Trust Funds.  Members are nominated and elected for two-year terms.  Those wishing to view the complete school plan for State LAND Trust Funds can view it at SchoolLandTrust.schools.utah.gov/publicreports. The term LEA means Local Education Agency, so scroll down to Washington District to find the DHMS school plan.

Any parents interested in placing their names on the ballot for Community Council may e-mail: gro.21khsaw@prahs.nor or come into the school office. Thank you.

The plan for LAND Trust Funds at Desert Hills Middle has two major dimensions:

  1. Enrich all classrooms to enhance learning for all students
  2. Support and enhance the Professional Learning Community at Desert Hills Middle School

Thank you for your interest in serving on the LAND Trust Community Council at Desert Hills Middle School. There is money that needs to be spent at our school and we need YOU to help us determine how to spend it!
