Local school boards arrange for annual training of the local school board and school community council members in their district, including training for council officers. Charter school governing boards, and Charter Trust Land Councils are also trained each year. Training materials to support districts and charter schools are found here. The School Children’s Trust provides training upon request.
Please contact the School Children’s Trust at the Utah State Office of Education for support, training, or to request additional training materials.
