School LAND Trust Program
In the state of Utah, monies from school trust lands are distributed to every public school through the School LAND Trust Program. Mountain West Montessori Academy has a School LAND Trust Committee whose responsibilities include creating and approving the School LAND Trust Plan each year which identify an academic need and a proposed solution using the annual funds. The committee is an advisory body that may be comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators. All School LAND Trust Committee actions and plans are overseen and approved by the Governing Board of Directors. School LAND Trust Committee members are willing volunteers who care about the success of students and overall school improvement and Mountain West Montessori Academy is grateful for their time and dedication.
The School LAND Trust Committee meetings are open to the public. See Agendas below. The council will utilize an informal meeting format following a pre-determined agenda and voting procedures will follow Robert’s Rules.
