School LAND Trust

The School LAND Trust Program, established by the Legislature in 1999, distributes the “annual dividend” from the permanent State School Fund through school districts and charter schools for all public schools in the state. Elected parents, elected teachers, and the school’s principal serve on a School Community Council. School Community Councils in each school prepare a plan to address the school’s greatest academic need(s). Local School Boards approve the plans, and funding is sent to each school with an approved plan before the school year begins. The program is paperless and visible on the web at

Here is the LAND Trust plan for Butler Elementary School for the current year.

The final report for last year is currently pending initial review by a School LAND Trust administrator. I will share it with you here in the Bobcat Observer when it is approved and posted on the State website.
