School improvement is the responsibility of everyone, from students and parents to professionals and public officials. School community councils are one way we can work together to make schools more successful. The School LAND Trust Program, established by the legislature in 1999, distributes funding from the State School Fund through school districts and charter schools for all public schools in the state.
A council is an advisory body. All of its actions and plans are overseen by the local school board. Charter LAND Trust Council members are volunteers who care about the success of students and overall school improvement. By working on the council or committee, parents ensure the representation of various viewpoints and values from within the school community. Parents make up the majority of school community council members, and are often the driving force.
Elected parents, elected teachers, and the school’s principal serve on the Community Council. Plans are developed to improve student academic performance in the identified academic areas with the annual School LAND Trust funds. Meetings are open to the public. The school plan is approved by the board and available for public review.

We greatly appreciate the support of our families. You are the key to the success of many of our programs and enrichment activities. Our parental involvement and contributions help build our Soldier Hollow community. Our parents enjoy participating in the education of their children and being able to spend time in the classroom and on field experiences. Our teachers love the extra helping hands for class projects and creative ideas for parties! Thank you to all of our volunteers for being an important part of our Soldier Hollow family.
Keeping track of volunteer hours assists us in obtaining grants and funding for our school. It also helps us recognize the hard work and time donated by our dedicated families. Whether you are working with us on campus or helping out on a project from home, be sure to log your volunteer hours in ParentSquare under the Participate menu on the left side of the page.
