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. Syracuse Arts Academy has a School LAND Trust Committee for each campus whose responsibilities include creating and approving the School LAND Trust Plan each year which identifies an academic need and a proposed solution using the annual funds. Each campus 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 Syracuse Arts Academy is grateful for their time and dedication.

The School LAND Trust Committee meetings are open to the public.  See the agendas and minutes below.  Each council has adopted the LAND Trust Council Rules of Order & Procedure.  For more information about the School LAND Trust Program visit their website.
