Patriot of the Month Assembly

Posted in News & Announcements

Our first assembly this year (due to flooding): We had our new Canyons Superintendent, Dr. James Briscoe, as a guest speaker. His main points were: We value education because our parents instill the importance of it in us. Leadership is not a title, it's something we earn by our work ethic. It is important to be so busy improving ourselves that we have no time to criticize others. See failure as an opportunity (to change course, do something new). Sherriff Winder also spoke to us about integrity and heart. What do we do when no one is watching? It was a great assembly honoring our Patriot of the Month students for their outstanding examples!

Sage Testing

Posted in News & Announcements

SAGE Results Coming Oct. 20: What Families Can Expect

In spring 2014, the State Board of Education required all Utah Students, beginning in the third grade, to take new state tests. The tests, called SAGE (Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence), were designed to measure more challenging state standards in mathematics, English language arts, and science. They are completely different from the CRTs. Therefore, SAGE and CRT results cannot be compared.

Statewide SAGE results will be released Monday, Oct. 20, 2014. These will include results for every school district and every school in the state.

At this point, the Utah State Office of Education is reporting that fewer than half of the Utah students tested are expected to score as proficient in English language arts, mathematics and science http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/mobile3/58310430-219/results-standards-percent-students.html.csp.

As always, we will prepare individual student reports to share with you in conferences later in the school year.  In the meantime, parents are urged to keep a few things in mind when interpreting these scores:

-          SAGE scores cannot be compared to the CRTs. The tests are different, and measure different standards, or expectations, for student achievement.

-          SAGE tests measure whether students are meeting the state’s higher expectations for college- and career-readiness.

-          When tests that measure higher standards are first introduced, test scores typically appear lower than what parents might be used to, the state reports. However, in many cases, the state reports that test scores gradually improve in the years thereafter http://schools.utah.gov/board/Meetings/Agenda/docs/Tab7.aspx.

SAGE results will influence state school accountability reports. The State Office of Education has indicated that most Utah schools will receive D or F grades as a result of these more challenging standards. The State Board of Education will continue to discuss estimated results with members of the Utah Legislature. School grades are expected to be released to the public in December.

At this point, as is always the case with test scores, we recommend parents focus on a child’s individual achievement, celebrate successes, and set individual goals as appropriate for your child’s success.
