School LAND Trust

In the state of Utah, monies from school trust lands are distributed to every public school through the School LAND Trust Program. North Davis Preparatory Academy has a School LAND Trust Committee 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. 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 North Davis Preparatory Academy is grateful for their time and dedication. More information is available on the School LAND Trust Website.
