Governance and Oversight
City Academy Board of Trustees
The City Academy Board of Trustees (Board) meets at school at 4:15 PM on the third Wednesday of each month August – June, but in December only by vote each year. All Board members are elected to the Board from the community at large except one seat on the board held by the parent chair of the City Academy Advisory Council. All Board meetings follow open meeting laws.
The City Academy Board serves a dual purpose both as the School Board for City Academy, and as the fiduciary board for the Salt Lake City charter school’s 501(c)3 status.

City Academy Advisory Council (CAAC)
The City Academy Advisory Council (CAAC) meets at school at 4:15 PM on the second Tuesday of each month October – May, but not in December. In addition to a parent chair, the Council has a total of at least two more parents than other adult members, two teachers, two students, and one administrator. All CAAC members are elected by their constituencies. All CAAC meetings follow open meeting laws.
The Council is mandated by state law and its purpose is to advise the City Academy Board and Executive Director on the following: Use of School Land Trust funds, Comprehensive Guidance Policy, Title I programs development and oversight, digital citizenship and safe technology use, student transportation plan, First Amendment School issues, School Wellness Program, and any other issues of concern to the school population as a whole.
One of the primary duties of the CAAC is to act as the School Land Trust Council. Each year City Academy receives Land Trust funding to address issues of our school improvement plan. A copy of the previous school year final School Land Trust Report is available Here
