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 integral in developing the Diamond Fork Middle 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 3:00 p.m. in room 34.
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. For example, in the 2018-19 school year we distributed approximately $122,000 to help with student achievement.
If you would like to know more about Trust Lands and the role of the Community Council, you may reference the official School Land Trust Program website.
