Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.
Focus on STEAM
Uintah focuses on STEAM. Teachers attended science PD and regularly implemented lessons in all STEAM areas with daily math lessons and weekly science, technology and art lessons. The school also held a STEAM night in the Spring for the community where students shared their Science Fair project results and outside agencies such as the Discovery Gateway came in to present science related activities to families. Uintah also holds a yearly Arts Night in the Spring, but because of the pandemic, this was not accomplished this past year.
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Support for MLL students
Uintah focuses on the growth and achievement of our MLL population. Because of the combined efforts of classroom teachers and a 1/2 time dedicated MLL teacher, 10 of our 18 MLL students receiving services achieved a 5 or 6 on the WIDA test, which means that they achieved proficiency in English to the point that they no longer need dedicated MLL services. Way to go Uintah!
