Midvale Mustang Families,
Our school is identified as a school needing Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI). This means that we need to intensify our efforts to support all groups of children reaching higher achievement. The State Board of Education uses criteria from the federal education law (Every Student Succeeds Act) to track students in broad groups to help monitor achievement. The groups identified at our school include students with disabilities and students learning English. When one or more student groups in a school falls below the lowest 5% achievement score in the state for two years, that school must develop a specific plan to improve learning. It takes at least two years to exit TSI status, but it can take up to four years. Our School Improvement Plan has been updated to address specific learning needs.
Parents and families make a big difference. You can help by:
-Communicating frequently with your student’s teachers
-Making sure your student attends school regularly
-Helping your student with homework
-Monitoring your student’s screen time
-Reading aloud to your student
-Participating in school decision-making
Sincerely, Principal Reynolds
While many traditional celebrations that take place this time of year might look drastically different this season, the Canyons Education Foundation is planning an event that ticks all of the boxes: It’s fun, it’s for a good cause, and the entire community can participate.
The Canyons Education Foundation’s inaugural Virtual Fun Run kicks off Nov. 22-28, and provides an opportunity for participants to complete a 5K that is safe and will benefit members of the community through a fundraiser for Internet connectivity and computing devices for students in need.
“We know there are individuals who would love to help out within the District, so this is a way for employees and our own student families to be able to help other student families,” said Denise Haycock, Development Officer for the Canyons Education Foundation.
Those who wish to participate in the fun run can visit this link to sign up.
