All parents and guardians of Utah International students are members of the Parent Association and are invited to Parent Association meetings. When a vote of parents or parent representatives is required, the Parent Association sits as the Parent Council and a vote is taken in writing of all members present. Parent Association meetings take place in the library. UI students and younger siblings are asked to stay at home; these meetings are for parents and guardians only. Parents will sit at first-language tables with an interpreter to help discuss the agenda items.
