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.
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Increased Focus on Effective ELD Instruction
At Mountain View Elementary, 61% of our students are Multi-Language Learners (MLLs). In the 2019-2020 school year, 57.4% of MLLs met or exceeded their growth goal on the 2020 WIDA compared to 46.6% of MLLs in 2019. In addition, 26 students moved to proficiency, which was the most of any Salt Lake City School District school. We were recognized as a Utah Exemplary School by the Utah State Board of Education.
AAPPL Assessment Excellence
At Mountain View Elementary, we assess Dual Language Immersion (DLI) students annually using the Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages (AAPPL) assessment to determine students' proficiency level in their acquisition of language skills in the target language of Spanish. According to the 2019-2020 AAPPL assessment results, 96% of Mountain View's third grade DLI students were on- or above-level in Speaking, which is the only area assessed in third grade. In fourth grade, 100% of Mountain View fourth grade students scored on- or above-level in the Reading section and 98% in the Writing section. Additionally, 100% of fifth grade Mountain View DLI students scored on- or above-level in Speaking, which is the only area assessed in fifth grade.
