School Land Trust Funding and Canyon Rim Academy
School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA) manages school trust lands to generate revenue for schools. In 2017 Utah public schools received over $64 million dollars through the School LAND Trust Program.
Every school receives School LAND Trust Program funding through a student enrollment based funding formula described in the law. The annual interest and dividend income from investment of the permanent State School Fund is where the annual allocation comes from. The funds flow through the school district, but districts do not withhold any funds. Charter school funds are sent to directly to the school.
