Community Council

Serving on our School Community Council is a wonderful way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school.  

The school receives an annual dividend from the school trust lands.  Our council decides how these funds will be used.  Last year our school received $62,462.00 from the School LAND Trust Program.  

The council reviews and prepares other academic plans for our students each year.  All plans are reviewed for final approval by our school board.  

Councils also act in an advisory capacity to school and school district administrations.

If you are interested in being part of the School Community Council for this year, please email the School at Brad.Jolley@washk12.org or stop by the office.
