1st Annual State-wide School Community Council Conference with a Keynote by Mark Shurtleff

There has been significant interest in giving School Community Council members an opportunity network with members from other districts. Education leaders and school community council members have come together to organize this opportunity.

In addition to Mark Shurtleff's keynote address, we will have a panel discussion with education leaders from around the state on the future of School Community Councils. Breakout sessions will include Effective Plans, Parent Engagement, Roles, Compliance, Understanding and Accessing Data, and Effective Councils and will be taught by presenters including Margaret Bird and staff from USOE, Kim Campbell and staff from the Center for the School of the Future at Utah State University, Barbara Smith from the Utah Family Partnership Network, and district and school level leaders from around the state. This will be a hands-on event with built in chances to share best practices and learn from each other. There will also be an opportunity to give key legislators input on future School Community Council legislation.

We encourage all schools to identify a team to attend this exciting new venue for a quality networking and learning experience.

Utah Family Partnership Network

Utah Family Partnership Network (UFPN) working with a State-wide steering committee made up of representatives from leading education and parent statewide organizations, district school community council liaisons, community council members and chairs, surveyed over 200 school community council members across and state and almost 50% of the district superintendents. There was overwhelming interest in an event that would give them an opportunity to network and learn from other school community council members across the state.
UFPN, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, has had oversite over the USDE Parent Information Resource Center grant and has been involved with School Community Council best practices for over 15 years. They will be acting as lead agency for this event. This is an exciting opportunity to take our councils beyond compliance and giving them the skills they need to become great advocates for their schools.

School Community Council Conference POSTPONED

Due to the winter storm predicted for Friday, November 9th, we have decided to postpone the School Community Council Conference scheduled that day in Park City until Thursday, January 24th.  We are very excited about the enthusiasm around the conference, but are not willing to put our presenters or attendees in harm’s way. Please distribute this message in every way that you can. We do have some concern about those who may decide to show up at the door without having pre-registered.  Any registration fees that have been pre-paid will be reimbursed

Thank you for your help with this effort. We look forward to seeing everyone in January.


Barbara Smith, Director UFPN
