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.
Hybrid Learning for 2020-2021 School Year
During the middle and end of the 2020-2021 school year, teachers and paraprofessionals at Uintah Elementary worked with students in a hybrid fashion, both online and in-person, in order to maintain the classroom community that had already been built during remote learning, but also to support students academically wherever they were found. Students who stayed remote only were also allowed to come in at least once a week in order to work with a teacher or paraprofessional in small groups or one-on-one on targeted skills. As a result of this approach, students at Uintah saw high growth scores on their End-of-Level assessments despite dealing with the most challenging year of schooling most had ever seen. Way to go, Unicorns!
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Support for Multi-Language Learners
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, over half of our 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. We will continue to monitor these students to ensure that they continue to achieve academically. Way to go Unicorns!
