Comment During Public Review of New SEEd Standards
Check out the new Utah Science and Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards for Grades K-5 and High School released last week. After reviewing the newly drafted standards, you can make public comment regarding changes or comments you propose on this anonymous survey.
The drafts documents were created to meet the needs articulated by Utah teachers around the current science standards, incorporate cutting-edge research about how students best learn science, and meet the needs of students in the 21st century.
Once the 90-Day Public Review has concluded, the science writing teams will reconvene, to consolidate the feedback for the USBE to review and provide direction on how to revise the draft accordingly.
Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback and supporting the process of developing science standards that prepare Utah students to be college and career ready.
Expectations for Students with Disabilities Survey
The USBE has created a survey about students with disabilities in Utah. They would like as many respondents as possible to share their expectations for and beliefs about educational programs for students with disabilities in our state.
The purpose of this stakeholder survey is to determine baseline public knowledge, perceptions, and expectations regarding mathematics for Utah students, their academic and social achievement, and expected post-school outcomes.
Data from this survey will be used by the Utah State Board of Education specialists and leaders in planning for training, professional development, and technical assistance. All responses are anonymous.
Shakespeare in Schools Performance
It is time again to plan for the Utah Shakespeare Festival's Shakespeare in the Schools performance of MacBeth. The performance will be at Pleasant Grove High School on Wednesday, March 20th beginning at 9:45 am. Seats will be $3.00 each.
Tickets are on a first come, first served basis and open for reserving. Call or email Julie Adamic, Principal of John Hancock Charter School, if you have any questions and to reserve your tickets. If you choose to have your class attend, remember to follow the field trip approval protocol.
