Hillside Middle School is proud to have the support of a strong community council.

The School Community Council (SCC) is a shared governance council formed by the parents and staff of Hillside Middle School in accordance with state law. The SCC was established in 1974 by the Salt Lake School Board, which has empowered each SCC to make decisions regarding their school as a cooperative means of improving the educational programs and conditions within that school. Its membership should represent school employees and parents or guardians of students. Ideas for discussion topics may be generated by any individual or group in the school community.
