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.


Attendance Matters

Access, opportunity, and success in school increase substantially when students are IN school. School personnel have paid careful attention to tardy rates as well as attendance. Administration regularly called homes with habitual absences and tardy issues. The school counselor communicated with families and met with identified students. Uintah has laid much of the groundwork for strong and steady attendance and has begun to create an incentive program for students with perfect attendance.


Social/Emotional Learning

Monthly professional development took place and centered on the ACEs study (Kaiser Permanente Health Care Company) - ACEs is an acronym for the Adverse Childhood Experiences. Uintah staff also engaged in professional development on Restorative Practices; this connected well with the ACES study. Metrics for success were directly tied to student office referrals and contributed to our school experiencing zero student suspensions last year.
