Juab School Community,
Thank you for being part of another fantastic year in Juab School District! As always, your feedback is very important to the district. Our goal is to provide our students a first class
education. Below is a link to our survey results conducted by the University of Utah Education Policy Center in partnership with all of the school districts that are part of the Central Utah Educational Services. We are very grateful for all of the positive support and we are looking forward to finding ways to improve every student's experience in our schools. We honor and recognize that Juab School District is your educational choice for the children of this great area and we are looking forward to continue to serve you. A special thanks to the teachers, staff, and school administrations for all they do for our students!
Parents & guardians,
Please take time to read the immunization requirements for Kindergarten and 7th grade students to attend school in Juab School District 2015-16. There a few new requirements by the state health department for 2015-16. There is also a change in practice within Juab School District. If students do not come to school with appropriate proof of immunization as explained in the letter or the appropriate documentation of exemption, the student will not be allowed to attend school until this is addressed. Any new student wishing to enroll in any school will also need to show proof of immunization before they can attend. State law requires Utah children be appropriately immunized before attending school. We recognize the challenges immunizations can bring to our families. We are hopeful that by providing information as early as possible in the school year, this will help families in making these critical decisions. The district will be working with county health agencies to provide immunizations at registration to assist you as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Juab School District Nurse Cathy Sunderland at 435-623-0328, Juab County Health Department at 435-623-0696, or Juab School District Office at 435-623-1940. If your student is currently enrolled in a Juab School District school and you would like to check their immunization status, please contact the school they attend.

Today, the Utah State Office of Education released the results of the SAGE (Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence) adaptive test in math, language arts, and science that Utah students participated in last spring. This assessment is a computer adaptive test with rigorous interactive questions. This was a substantial change from the criterion-referenced tests given in the past. The SAGE assessment is aligned with post high school readiness expectations and standards. It is not a surprise that with this change, we experienced a decrease in student proficiency percentages across the state including our schools in Juab School District. The definition of proficiency has moved from mastery of content to on track for college and career readiness. Our students are not learning less, and our teachers are not teaching less. The bar has been set higher for our students, and we must help them reach their potential. We now have the baseline to better prepare our students with the skills necessary to reach their college and career goals.
There has been a lot of media attention to this and the impact the new test results may have on school grading in Utah. It is likely that many schools in Utah including our own will be labeled with low grades as school accountability report cards are rolled out this winter. Juab School District has always maintained a high level of academic excellence. We will assess our performance and look for ways to continue to improve and maintain our students' educational experience. I expect our students to continue to achieve in all aspects at a high level. To meet these new higher standards, it will take our collective strengths as parents, educators, and community members to support our children more than ever. We are planning to share individual student report cards with parents at our upcoming parent-teacher conferences in both elementary and secondary schools. If parents would like to obtain their student's report card before parent-teacher conference, they are welcome to pick up a hard copy at their school. I encourage parents to visit with their student's teachers and their school's principal to help them understand the information that is on the report card. I am confident that together we are up to the challenge to prepare our children for the future. The public can view SAGE results at:
